THANKS 



We, the messengers and delegates of the churches of the Mount Zion 
Association, want to express our thanks and gratitude to the church and 
community of Mount Ada for their kind and appreciative hospitality 
shown us during the session of this body. 

J. F. McDuffie. 
Adopted by a rising vote. 

MEMORIAL TO VICE-MODERATOR T. M. GREEN 
Geo. T. Watkins moved to appoint J. F. McDuffie to write an 
obituary. The following was submitted: 

Brother T. M. Green, Brother beloved, came to the Mount Zion 
Association in 1919 and became the pastor of West Durham Baptist 
Church in August. 

From the beginning of his ministry in our Association he grew on 
the people, not only of this church, but with the whole community in 
which he moved. His influence grew so rapidly in the Association that 
our Executive Board thought it best to give him entire supervision over 
the Mission work of the Association, and employed him for half-time 
to look after the Mission work, and assist pastorless and weak churches 
in procuring a pastor. He did his work satisfactorily, so far as he 
could get cooperation with the churches. He had just begun to lay a 
foundation for progressive and effectual work which, no doubt, had he 
lived, would have resulted in great good to our Association. But death 
claimed him, and we had to bow with humble submission to our Father's 
ruling. 

Treasurer J. N. Cheek made his report. (See page 25.) On 
motion of R. C. Harris the report was adopted as read. 

W. E. Young made the report for the Finance Committee. 
(See page 26.) On motion of T. D. Collins the report was 
adopted as read. 

Motion to adjourn was made by J. N. Cheek. After singing 
"Blest Be the Tie" and prayer by J. R. Cantrell, the Associa- 
tion adjourned to meet with Mount Carmel church, Tuesday after 
the second Sunday in October, 1926. 

Walter M. Williams, Moderator. 

W. O. Williams, Clerk. 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 13 

REPORTS 



REPORT ON SUNDAY SCHOOL WORK 

What is the general situation among North Carolina Baptists with 
regard to Sunday School work, and what is this Association contributing 
to its improvement and progress? In order to find an answer to these 
questions we must turn to statistics furnished by our Boards. 

We must face, first, the gigantic task of enlisting the more than 
half-million people in North Carolina who rightfully belong to Baptists. 
The army of one-fifth million of these who are members of our churches 
must be led to "study" if they are to show themselves "approved unto 
God," and they must be led to see that the Sunday School is the grand- 
est opportunity for such educational and spiritual growth. The most 
effective plan for reaching these possibilities is that suggested by our 
efficient State and Convention Sunday School Secretaries, E. L. Mid- 
dleton and Arthur Flake; namely, a thorough religious census of our 
various communities followed up by an intensive campaign of enlistment. 

Fortunately, Mount Zion Association is not closing its eyes to the 
fact that adequate buildings and equipment are necessary if we are 
to attract, hold, and minister to these prospective members. A splendid 
example of this is found in the new modern Sunday School building 
located at Chapel Hill, where over 600 of our Baptist boys are being- 
trained for Christian citizenship in our state. 

Any report on the Sunday School task within the boundaries of the 
state would be empty which failed to emphasize the challenge of the 
200,000 adults and the quarter-million children who are unsaved as yet, 
and who are the direct responsibility of our people. We must rise to 
the occasion and strive, with the help of our Master, to bring about 
the day when of these "every knee shall bow and every tongue confess 
that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father." This calls 
forth prayer, diligent toil and sacrifice — but we have the spiritual re- 
sources, so let us "be about our Master's business" in the field of Sunday 
School Evangelism. 

There are over 2,000 rural churches in the open country and in vil- 
lages of 1,000 and less. They furnish more than ninety percent of our 
ministers, missionaries, and denominational leaders. Thus we see the 
infinite help given our cause everywhere by aiding these rural churches. 
There are approximately 1,875 Sunday Schools in these churches, and 
1,017 have to meet in a single room. They must be provided with better 
Sunday School departments. 

Among the 2,159 churches in North Carolina, there are 2,169 Sunday 
Schools, with a membership of about 286,793, more than 12,000 of whom 
have been added within the past year. We are making splendid progress 
in enrolling members in our Sunday Schools. One of our chief problems 
is holding that membership. The constant leakage is to be attributed 
largely to poor teaching. Our younger pupils, particularly, are in our 
public and private educational institutions where efficient and careful 
teaching is demanded through careful preparation. Coming to our 
Sunday Schools they often find poor teaching because our teachers are 
untrained for the task of the church school and they lose interest and 
are lost. May we not urge intensive work in the Sunday School Normal 
Course and the new course of "Sunday School Administration"? This 



14 Fifty-Sixth Annual Session 



course consists of the following books: "Building a Standard Sunday- 
School," "Sunday School Officers and Their Work," "The Department 
Sunday School," and "The Sunday School Secretary and the Six-Point 
Record System." It is being offered in the South-wide Sunday School 
Clinics sponsored by the Sunday School Board, one of which was held 
at Knoxville, Tennessee, in 1924, and another in Charlottesville, Virginia, 
during the past August, and which some of our Sunday School workers 
in this Association attended. 

The sixth year of the holding of conferences for Sunday School 
Superintendents and other workers has proved a marked success. This 
year they were held at Canton, Monroe, and Scotland Neck. The en- 
rollment at these meetings reached 175 above the local attendance. 
Seventy-five churches were represented, classified as follows: 55 general 
superintendents, 30 pastors, 15 department superintendents, with the 
remainder of the attendance being that of other officers and teachers. 

Let us continue to train our officers and teachers for their momen- 
tous task. 

North Carolina can justly be proud of her place among the states 
of the Southern Baptist Convention. She ranks next to Texas in number 
of schools, Sunday School membership, and standard schools. We have 
41 standard schools in the state, five of which are within the Mount 
Zion Association. These are Cedar Fork, Chapel Hill, Grace Church 
(Durham), Lystra, and Olive Chapel. 

As the future of our cause lies with our Sunday Schools, let us 
continue the splendid work that is being done in this field.

REPORT ON BIBLICAL RECORDER 

The Biblical Recorder was first printed by Thomas Meredith ninety- 
one years ago. Since then it has served as organ of the Baptists of 
North Carolina. It contains the best thoughts of the best thinkers 
among our people. It is set for the constructive effort of our people 
in obeying the command of the Master to carry the Gospel to all the 
w r orld. It is published in the interest of our Baptist work, and at the 
expense of the stockholders, for the past four years the paper has been 
a liability. The Recorder promotes the things that shall win. It seeks 
to aid in bringing in the certain reign of Christ. The readers of The 
Recorder are its best asset, and, in North Carolina, the Kingdom's best 
friends. 

The best is none too good for our North Carolina Baptist homes. 
The future homes depend on the Christian culture of the homes of this 
generation. 

People are largely influenced by what they read. Read the best, 
and the best things do, and the God of the best will reserve the best 
for you. 

The price is only $2.00 per year. 

Let's increase the circulation from 16,000 to 25,000.

REPORT ON HOSPITALS 

Our hospital at Winston-Salem, N. C, cared for and looked after 
during last fiscal year, around 1,600 patients going from all parts of 
the state. 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 15 



Two hundred and twenty-five (225) of this number were charity 
patients. It costs practically $10,000, or an average of $40 for each 
charity patient, so you can readily see how badly our Hospital needs 
not only our prayers, but our financial aid and cooperation. 

Many of our best people know absolutely nothing of our Hospital 
at Winston-Salem, and care less, though they all are stockholders in 
same, small or large. Acquaintance with the institution is what is 
greatly needed. 

What we need to do is to talk and patronize our beloved Hospital. 
Give it a chance to do its work alongside with other like institutions, 
and then you will see it grow and become a blessing to humanity, and 
bring joy forevermore to us all. 

When you have stood by our institution in the above way and man- 
ner, then the unborn suffering will rise up and call us blessed. Only 
4 cents out of every dollar raised by the denomination is expended or 
allotted for our Hospital, so you see we can't expect much results with 
so little expended. 

Let's urge our friends and neighbors who have means, to make a 
place or provision in their last will and testament for our Hospital, 
and then their money will continue to count and be a blessing long after 
they are gone to their reward. 

Our Hospital is the Baby Institution with us, but it is growing by 
leaps and bounds, and if we will only give it a chance to serve us, it 
will be full-grown before we know it. 

God speed the day when we, the parents of this Baby Institution, 
will stand by and protect it. 

Respectfully submitted, 

L. G. Cole. 

REPORT OF RELIEF AND ANNUITY BOARD 

The report of the Relief and Annuity Board for the last Convention 
year closed May 1, 1925, was one of the fairly good years in the Board's 
history, notwithstanding the great financial depression and shortage of 
receipts. 

The relief beneficiaries received during the year $127,021.35; the 
beneficiaries of the Annuity Fund received $10,103.58, making a total 
of $137,124.93, which is more than the Board has paid out in benefits 
in any one year. 

The Board repeated itself last December in sending out Christmas 
checks to beneficiaries, the amounts ranging from $5.00 to $10.00 each, 
according to the circumstances. The Board hopes to make this an 
annual habit. 

The Board is now carrying on its roll 1,086 beneficiaries; 600 aged 
ministers, 386 widows and about 100 orphan children. 

The Board is also rendering aid to states which are wholly unable 
to provide for their retired preachers. It is spending thousands of dol- 
lars annually in this specific kind of aid. There was but little hope for 
a large class of dependent preachers until the Relief and Annuity 
Board was organized. The total amount donated to these states within 
the period of five years during the 75 Million Campaign was $53,838.72. 

The great, immediate, and all but desperate need of this Board is 
a fund that will yield for general relief alone $100,000 per year in addi- 
tion to what the Board would get from the regular budget. This state- 



16 Fifty-Sixth Annual Session 



ment has been made over and over again through our denominational 
press for the past two years. It is the one outstanding, glaring need 
of our Board, and should not be difficult of attainment. We must 
continue to press this particular need. The Board can never begin 
to do the adequate thing until this fund is obtained. If some of our 
rich people could only see their way to make some large gifts to this 
Board, or to remember us in their wills. 

Every minister, of course, knows that sooner or later, if he lives, 
he will have to retire to private life. It is sweet and assuring to know 
that when the time comes he can do so without being the humiliated 
object of charity; that he can still hold up his head and walk with self- 
respect among his brethren of the calling, because there has been pro- 
vided by the gratitude and thoughtfulness and generosity of the people 
he served, at least a small competence to supplement his own meager 
means, so that in the latter days of his earthly life he will not have to 
eke out a bare existence. Now, what we are trying to do is to bring 
just such a situation into our Southern Baptist ministry. The new plan, 
when once in operation, will absolutely do that.

REPORT ON HOME MISSIONS 

"And ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and Judea, 
and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost parts of the earth." In these 
words we have our Lord's world-wide evangelization program. Our 
report has to do with the Samaritan part of the program. We mean 
by this mission activities within the bounds of the Southern Baptist 
Convention under the supervision of the Home Mission Board, located 
at Atlanta and organized in 1845. The work began with meager forces 
and resources, but steadily grew in scope and power until the Board 
has become one of the greatest factors in America for the salvation and 
development of our national life. That the South is the most Christian 
part of America is largely due to the great work of our Home Mission 
Board and the blessings of God on its labors. 

But in spite of the abundant blessings of God upon the work in all 
its departments, and in the face of unparalleled opportunities for en- 
largement, the Board has been compelled during the last few years to 
make drastic retrenchments, both in the force of workers and in appro- 
priations. This is due to the serious falling off in receipts. At the 
meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention in Memphis the debt on 
the Home Mission Board was $1,105,750.41. This should stir every 
Southern Baptist's heart with deepest concern. It will be calamitous 
in the extreme for us to retrench any further. On the contrary, we 
must enlarge, or lose immeasurably on fields where we have labored for 
years and laid the foundations for the future. For four years we have 
suffered the loss of missionaries and evangelists on account of our finan- 
cial condition. We need fifty capable young women for our different 
fields and as many men. Baptists, both from their peculiar doctrine 
and numbers, have the greatest opportunities and obligations to hold 
this great section for Jesus Christ, and make it a centre from which 
shall go out mighty forces of world redemption. To strengthen our 
Home Mission work is to strengthen the things that tend to enthrone 
Christ and crown Him Lord of all. Through the following departments 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 17 



the Home Mission Board seeks to further the Kingdom of our Lord 
in the South: Cooperative Missions, Enlistment, Evangelism, Mountain 
Schools, Foreigners, Indians and Negroes, Cuba, Panama, Soldiers and 
Seamen, Publicity, Southern Baptist -Sanatorium, and Church Extension.

REPORT ON TEMPERANCE 

The supreme need of the hour in temperance is action, not talk. 
Conviction is crying for the mastery, not appetite. Courage is the need 
now, not cowardice. Faith is the touchstone, not doubt. Strength is 
demanded, not weakness. Righteousness needs to gird her loins and 
defy evil. Truth needs to be exalted and error dethroned. The man 
in man is the need of the hour. Practical temperance is crying unto 
God for vindication, and justice is pleading to be crowned. All of 
these things would weave a garland of victory for temperance and crown 
her queen in the midst of her enemies and scoffers. If these things 
would mean victory, what about them as they relate to us? — Every- 
thing. We are responsible for our sector. Let us shape that into suc- 
cess and place the burden elsewhere. 

Let us form law enforcement leagues in every community. Let us 
stand in both talk and practice for temperance; let us encourage and 
help the officers in law enforcement. Let us stand for temperance both 
at home and abroad; let us cry aloud and spare not. Your committee 
offers the above report to be put into practice believing it would mean 
victory. 

George T. Watkins, Chairman. 

HISTORIAN'S REPORT 
History of Yates Church 

The significance of a name, sometimes, has a telling effect upon an 
institution, as well as upon an individual. During the time of the agi- 
tation and organization of Yates Baptist Church, in Durham County, 
N. C.j there was a great and renowned Missionary Baptist preacher, 
who was born and reared within the bounds of the Mount Zion Asso- 
ciation, and had gone to China to preach the Gospel to the heathen; 
and his life was having such a reflex influence on the Baptist churches 
of our Southland, as well as on other lands, that the pastor and mem- 
bers of Yates Church began to think of an appropriate name for their 
church, and finally concluded to give it the name of "Yates"" in honor 
of his great name and influence over the brotherhood; and to perpetuate 
his memory, they named it for Mathew Tyson Yates, of Mount Pisgah 
Church, Chatham County, N. C. 

Yates Baptist Church was the first church organized as an arm of 
the First Church of Durham, N. C. It was organized on the 20th day 
of April, 1878, and made application for admittance into the Mount Zion 
Association, when the Association met at Bethel Church on the 27th 
day of August, 1878. Its application was referred to a committee con- 
sisting of Brethren C. Durham, J. H. Freeman, and T. D. Oldham. 
The committee after deliberating and examination of the application 
and delegates appointed by the church, recommended to the Association 
its admittance, and the Moderator received it, by extending the right 
hand of fellowship, and it became a member of the Association. 



18 Fifty-Sixth Annual Session 



When the organization of Yates Church was effected, Brethren C. 
Durham, George W. Purefoy, A. C. Dixon, and J. H. Freeman con- 
stituted the Presbytery. Thirty-two applicants, by letters, from other 
churches were read before the Presbytery, and they, unanimously, ac- 
cepted their recommendations from the churches, and pronounced them 
an organizd church. These constituted the charter members of Yates 
Church, but most of them have gone to their reward. Brother C. Dur- 
ham was called as their first pastor. 

Never has a pastor done more for this church or for the Mount 
Zion Association than Brother C. Durham. He was a big-hearted man, 
with a far-reaching vision. His influence for the development of mis- 
sion territory within the bounds of the Mount Zion Association, and 
for the establishment of Baptist churches, which stand today as a mon- 
ument to his blessed memory, is far greater than any pastor or preacher 
who has ever served in our Association. "One soweth, and another reap- 
eth." We, as an Association, are today reaping and building on the 
foundation which he laid. He was prudent and unselfish. He laid 
his life bare for service for his Lord and Master, and his fellowman. 
He loved the souls of men, and was willing to spend and be spent for 
their salvation. He was wise, discrete, and prudent in all his sugges- 
tions to the brethren concerning matters pertaining to his Lord's King- 
dom. He never compromised with sin on any terms, but always 
preached the gospel as he believed it, irrespective of creed or notion. 
He was loved for his candor and consecration. He was elected Cor- 
responding Secretary of the Mission Board of North Carolina but lived 
only a short while. Dr. Teachenor, a representative of the American 
Baptist Peb. Society, said of him in a speech at one of our conventions 
shortly after his death, "Brethren, you have let him kill himself." 

Other pastors who served this church did good work. It was served 
by such men as H. W. Norris, W. S. Olive, C. C. Newton, and others. 
None of the brethren seemed to have served very long. Brother Durham 
served from its organization, 1878, to 1881 ; Brother W. S. Olive from 
1884 to 1889; Brother George Dowell from 1893 to 1898. Brother A. D. 
Hunter served one year from 1883 to 1884, and was called the second 
time in 1901, and served to 1907. The other brethren served from one 
to three years. 

This church has kept pace with its support of all the objects fos- 
tered by our Convention. While it has not measured up to the extent 
of its ability perhaps, it has ever shown a friendly disposition to help 
support the cause of missions, education and benevolence. Recently it 
has caught a new vision and taken on new life, and now bids fair to 
become one of our best country churches. The progress it has made 
for the past two or three years has gone far beyond expectation. 

The seeds that have been sown in the hearts of the children of the 
Trices, the Coles, the Picketts, and others too numerous to mention, are 
beginning to take root, and bringing forth fruit as never before. Situ- 
ated as it is, on the boulevard leading from Chapel Hill to Durham, 
people are building splendid residences on either side of the highway, 
and the church has seized on the passing opportunity, and has completed 
a magnificent and commodious house of worship with sufficient capacity 
to accommodate their Sunday School and congregation. The congre- 
gations have increased to that extent, that they made no mistake in 
expending over $15,000 on their house of worship for the accommoda- 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 19 



tion and convenience of their community. They have one of the most 
beautiful houses of worship in any rural community in the Mount Zion 
Association, and perhaps it would not be exaggerating to say, equal 
to any in the state. 

In the vision they have caught, they have not failed to increase 
their contributions to the various objects of the State Convention, not- 
withstanding the heavy expense of their house of worship. They con- 
tributed last year almost as much for the objects of the Conventions 
as they did the year previous. They have preaching services now every 
Sunday night, and two Sundays at 11 o'clock in each month. They 
have a live, progressive Sunday School numbering over 200, well at- 
tended and growing. They also have a wide-awake B. Y. P. U. which 
is well attended by the young people, who are taking great interest in 
the work of the Kingdom. They have a W. M. U. which is doing good 
work. 

Brother C. E. P>yrd, with his active, good and progressive-spirited 
wife, is holding the fort admirably as pastor. They are both young and 
active, and well prepared in body and mind to do efficient service; and 
there is no reason why Yates Church, ere soon, with all these advan- 
tages and opportunities, should not become a great and stupendous 
power for good to the Kingdom of our Lord and His Christ. 

J. F. McDuffie. 

REPORT ON STATE MISSIONS 

The Baptist State Convention was organized at Greenville in 1830. 
At this first meeting, a State Mission Board was elected and a Cor- 
responding Secretary was sent out to raise funds with which to evan- 
gelize North Carolina. We have been in the business of State Missions 
for ninety-four years and the work was never more vital and construc- 
tive than today. 

The Workers 

There are 145 Missionaries in the employ of the Board this year. 
We are making it possible for many communities and destitute sections 
in the state to have the Baptist message. The labors of these Mission- 
aries have been wonderfully owned and blessed of the Lord. 

We have five Sunday School workers together with several Associa- 
tional Workers. These Associational Workers are paid by the local 
Association and the Sunday School Board at Nashville. 

We have a B. Y. P. U. force of four all-time workers together with 
the Associational Workers who give half time to the work of the 
B. Y. P. U. Miss Winnie Rickett, of Andrews, a recent graduate of 
Meredith College, has been selected as the Junior-Intermediate Secre- 
tary succeeding Mrs. Elma Farabow Davis. 

We have four all-time workers in the W. M. U. Department and 
two Associational workers. 

We have four Evangelists and one Negro Evangelist to our negro 
brethren. 

There are three enlistment men whose salaries are paid in part by 
the Home Mission Board. These men are all-round servants of the 
pastors and churches. 



20 Fifty-Sixth Annual Session 



In the Student Department we have three workers. They are located 
with the A. and E. College, Raleigh; the University at Chapel Hill, 
and with the N. C. C. W. College, Greensboro. These Student Secre- 
taries are our connecting link between the home and the individual stu- 
dent while away in college. They are doing much to foster and con- 
serve the spiritual life of our Baptist boys and girls in State Schools. 

There are many other phases of our State Mission work that we 
have not mentioned. Just now we are seriously hampered by a heavy 
debt on our running account. We are hoping that there will be a 
generous and loyal response from all the churches this fall so that we 
can go to the Convention with our debts paid in full, ready for a great 
forward-looking program in our State Mission work. 

C. S. Norville. 

REPORT ON ORPHANAGE 

Of all the flowers of Christianity, there is none more beautiful and 
fragrant than loving, sympathetic care for little children. The Master, 
when here among men, put a high estimate upon the worth of the child, 
and while holding them fondly in His arms forever committed His 
followers to their care and protection. 

The romantic history, as well as the size and efficiency of our own 
Thomasville Orphanage, is a source of pride and joy for all North 
Carolina Baptists. Born as it was in the inspired imagination and 
glowing heart of J. H. Mills, and laid upon the hearts of our people, 
the Orphanage was assured of a bright day, even though it must needs 
come through shadows. The fact that its present happy estate came 
out of tears, agonizing prayers, and arduous labors, gives it a bigger 
place in our affection, and vouches safe its future. 

North Carolina Baptists are justly proud of the Thomasville Or- 
phanage, as it occupies a position among the first in size and efficiency. 
While we feel this pride, our hearts are sad because there are hundreds 
of little hands extended, calling for help, and for lack of space they 
must be turned away. May our contributions and prayers, and loyal 
support, make it possible to reach even a much larger number. 

Since its opening nearly 2,500 have been enrolled. There are now 
at Thomasville and the Kennedy Home about 600 children. These are 
all being well cared for. Indeed, their advantages are just as good 
as can be provided in the absence of parents. The fact is, parents 
must be of a high order to do for their children what the Orphanage 
is doing for its great family. A number one grammar grade school; an 
accredited high school; a fine Sunday School, and a church with one 
of our finest young preachers for its pastor. 

Judging by the many capable boys and girls coming from the Or- 
phanage, these consecrated workers are doing wonderfully fine work. 

In the light of this magnificent work, the names of Mills, Boone, 
Kesler, and Johnson, along with the scores of others who have built 
their lives on this institution, will stand out in letters of gold. 

The later service which the Orphanage is seeking to render is not 
one whit less important, and indeed where conditions are such that 
admit of it, it is perhaps greater. The work referred to is Mothers' Aid. 
No one, nor any institution, can take the place of mother; therefore, 
where a worthy mother, by a little help, could keep the family together, 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 21 

she is encouraged to keep the children; and under competent guidance 
by Miss Edwards this aid is administered. 350 are thus aided and 
kept with their mothers. 

All these great facts in themselves make a powerful demand upon 
our people. There is no doubt that on each first Sunday and at Thanks- 
giving the Baptists of North Carolina will send in ample funds to 
carry on the work, and if possible should make it large enough to 
complete the plans for great enlargement. 

In the coming year may we give the Orphanage the place it rightly 
claims in our prayers and in our giving. 

T. O. Sorrell. 

REPORT ON CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

"The life of a nation depends upon its schools. The value of a 
school depends upon its ideals. The ideals of a school have the highest 
worth only as they are Christian. It is the duty of a church to make 
these ideals dominant in an education." 

The Baptists of North Carolina are maintaining three standard 
colleges: Chowan College, Meredith College, and Wake Forest College; 
two junior colleges: Wingate and Mars Hill; two high schools: Buie's 
Creek and Boiling Springs. In these institutions we had enrolled last 
year 3,704 students, including 226 candidates for the ministry and 97 
special volunteers. 

Our Baptist program for education includes general assistance to 
mission schools, training schools for young women who expect to enter 
church work, Bible institutes, and seminaries in which all the Southern 
states cooperate. 

As Baptists we outnumber any other denomination in North Caro- 
lina. There are 347,000 white Baptists in our state. As a great de- 
nomination we owe to the social life of the state, contributions in the 
way of trained citizenship in keeping with the host that follows us. 
The cost of denominational education in North Carolina should not be 
thought of in addition to the cost of public education. Without denom- 
inational education taxes would have to be greatly increased to provide 
training in the public educational institutions. As Baptists we are 
under obligation to give Christian training to the citizens and leaders 
of our denomination that shall be a credit to the great body which we 
represent. 

The fact of unprecedented progress in public schools and the expen- 
diture of millions in buildings and equipment does not lessen the burden 
upon denominational education ; it rather increases it because our church 
schools must measure up in equipment and efficiency and hold the same 
high standards in education as public institutions, the chief difference 
being we must insist upon Christian teachers of highest ideals. It is 
unfair to our Christian ideals for our institutions to give an inferior 
training to those who go to them. The challenge is greater today than 
ever before. 

As Baptists we feel that we have made, and are still making, a 
contribution to the life of our state and country. The simple princi- 
ples of our Baptist faith, we believe, are essential in the building of 
character and the welfare of our state. We must maintain creditable 
leadership. Baptist institutions and training in Baptist schools should 



Fifty-Sixth Annual Session 



be second to none in North Carolina. In the past our denominational 
leaders have come from our church schools. This fact is still true. 
There cannot be a successful leadership in our denomination without a 
well-informed membership. Business men and professional men are 
exerting an increased influence in our denominational life. There is 
only one way for us to maintain a membership in sympathy with our 
denominational program, and that way is through the education in our 
schools where the simple principles of our faith and loyalty are 
developed. 

We feel a profound sense of gratitude for the great work of our 
educational institutions and pray for divine guidance that they may 
continue to lead a great denomination in the principles of love and 
loyalty to Jesus Christ. 

K. U. Bryaxt. 

REPORT ON WOMEN'S WORK 

As we come to the close of another year's work we feel very grateful 
for the blessings that have come to us as a body of women. Although 
handicapped considerably because of the leaving of our Superintendent, 
Mrs. S. J. Porter, and of the illness of our Assistant Superintendent, 
Mrs. H. F. Brinson, we feel that the work has moved steadily forward. 

Among the outstanding features of our work is the interest of the 
women in Mission Study. It was gratifying indeed at our Convention 
in Winston-Salem to have Mount Zion Association accorded the honor 
of excelling all others in our state along this particular line. 

Another big step has been taken during the year with reference to 
the personal service work done by the societies. We are now striving 
to do this in an organized and much larger way. The women are 
undertaking this with their usual loyalty and enthusiasm. 

Although few new societies have been organized this year, the officers 
have put forth a special effort to reorganize some and get those who 
were barely existing in a working condition. We feel that we were 
fairly successful in this because of so many A-l societies being reported 
at our Associational meeting at the Temple Baptist Church. 

Among the new projects undertaken this year is the building of 
the Blanche Barrus' Home for Nurses at our hospital in Winston- 
Salem. We are striving to raise $950.00 for this purpose. 

We are now maintaining a scholarship in our Woman's Missionary 
Training School at Louisville, Kentucky. Miss Nellie Page of the 
Cedar Fork Church is using it this year. Although we have much 
yet before us we feel that we are going to raise the $20,000 apportioned 
us this year. 

The Associational banners for attaining the highest standard this 
year were awarded to the following societies: 

W. M. S. Banner to Watts Street, Durham, N. C. 

Mission Study Banner to Watts Street, Durham, N. C. 

Y. W. A. Banner to Temple Church, Durham, N. C. 

G. A. Banner to First Church, Durham, N. C. 

R. A. Banner to Olive Chapel. 

Sunbeam Banner to First Church, Durham, N. C. 

In this connection we wish to state that because of being able to 
hold this banner for three consecutive years the Y. W. A. of the Temple 
Church now keeps it.

REPORT ON FOREIGN MISSIONS 

Southern Baptists are not a provincial people. Our Foreign Mission 
work is now represented in seventeen countries of the world. Since 
1920 Baptists have begun work in the following countries: Hungary, 
Jugo-Slavia, Palestine-Syria, Roumania, Siberia, and Spain. These 
additional countries afford us a population to minister to now, twenty- 
five times as large as that within the bounds of the Southern Baptist 
Convention. As we think of our present Foreign Mission program, 
may we lay along side of it a field containing twenty-five persons to 
every one in the Southern States. 

Below are quotations from the recent report of the Board, giving 
a brief glance of the work in some of the countries occupied by our 
missionaries: 

This being the year of our Diamond Jubilee in Africa, we look with 
rejoicing and thanksgiving for all that God has done in this land. A 
great expansion has taken place during the last few years all over the 
country, especially in the outlying districts. Much of this has been the 
result of Home Missionary effort on the part of the independent 
churches. J. C. Powell, a missionary from this state to Africa, tells 
of baptizing more than one hundred natives in one of the churches 
during the past year. He speaks of the rigid examination the candi- 
dates must pass. Recently a group was questioned from 8 in the 
morning until 4 in the afternoon, taking one hour off for lunch and rest. 

"Where the evangelistic spirit reigns new churches spring up. In 
one state in Brazil eighteen have been organized during the year. One 
church in Bahia built a new church, outgrew it, and enlarged it, all in 
one year." 

"Two years ago a Chilean Home Mission Board was organized to 
carry the Gospel into the frontier. During the past year they have 
supported three missionaries who are doing a great work in the 'regions 
beyond.' Our Board contributes 50-50 with the native churches in this 
work." 



24 Fifty-Sixth Annual Session 



The work of our Board has its greatest strength in China. Of the 
539 missionaries supported by the Foreign Mission Board in all lands, 
over half — to be exact, 281 — labor in China. Many feel and say the 
anti-Christian movement has come too late. There is too large and 
strong an army of Christian men and women for such a movement to 
make much progress. Well written English articles by the Chinese, 
who have been educated in the mission schools, are appearing in the 
newspapers in highest praise of the missionaries and their work. Our 
China Baptist Publication Society has sent out during the past year 
nearly 2,000,000 copies of the various publications, so vast is its work. 

The work in Italy is most hopeful. Last year 214 were baptized 
there. While this seems small, "it is twice as many baptisms per mem- 
ber as either Virginia or Georgia had." 

A glimpse of the Willingham Memorial School for Boys, Japan, 
established in 1916, shows an institution with a Middle School, College, 
and Theological Seminary, having 635 students and more than 50 
teachers. 

In Jerusalem the light of a new day is breaking. Our work in "the 
land of the Lord" has faced persecution and faltered not. 

The latest item of good news was given out during the past month 
by the Foreign Mission Board. It is a gift of $26,000 for a building 
to house our Theological Seminary in Budapest, Hungary. It is on 
a broad boulevard just opposite the Parliament Buildings, and our 
local representative values the property twice the sum paid. This noble 
gift was made by Miss Varina Brown of South Carolina, whose sainted 
father long fostered our Foreign Mission work in a most generous 
manner. 

This brief review shows how God has blessed our work during the 
past year. 12,134 were baptized into the membership of the churches. 
Surely this achievement should remove any gloom now hanging over 
the work, and hasten the payment of the $1,250,000 debt on Foreign 
Missions. Already the Board has had to follow a policy of too rigid 
economy. 

In a recent letter from Rev. M. W. Rankin, Jr., China, a missionary 
supported by the Hocutt Memorial Church, Burlington, he says, in 
speaking of the present revolution: "I know he will never leave us 
alone. He seems to be nearer to us whenever we face dangers. Pray 
earnestly for us and the work here, and especially for our Christians 
in this time of testing." That's the spirit of our Lord's ambassadors in 
foreign lands. May we worthily sustain them as our representatives. 

Respectfully submitted,

REPORT OF B. Y. P. U. 

The Baptist Young People's Union of North Carolina was organ- 
ized in 1909. The first State Convention was held at Durham, in 1910. 
Ten Unions were represented at this convention. The convention held 
in June of this year at Salisbury was attended by more than 1,600 
representatives. You will see by this that the B. Y. P. U. State Con- 
vention has grown to be the largest Baptist meeting held in the state. 

This work is fostered by both the Baptist State Convention and the 
Sunday School Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. The State 
Mission Board has three whole-time workers in the field; namely, 



Mount Ziox Baptist Association 25 

• 

Perry Morgan, General Secretary; Edwin S. Preston, Field Secretary, 
and Miss Winnie Rickett, Junior and Intermediate Secretary. Their 
time is spent in general field work, such as conducting training schools, 
institutes, holding conventions, associational and district rallies. Their 
services are obtainable in cities, towns and rural districts. 

There are 1,624 B. Y. P. U. organizations in about 1,150 churches 
and in our schools and colleges. There are at least one thousand 
churches in our state without this training service for the young people. 
In these churches nothing is being done to train the young people. In 
the Mount Zion Association there are fifty-two churches. In these 
churches there are seventeen Junior, fourteen Intermediate, and thirty- 
five Senior B. Y. P. U.'s. You will notice that there have been 224 
B. Y. P. U.'s organized during the past year in North Carolina. In 
our Association there has been no increase in the Juniors, the Inter- 
mediates have gained seven, and the Seniors eight. Twenty-two of our 
churches have no union. 

B. Y. P. U. is the training agency of the Baptist denomination. 
Its object, as taken from the B. Y. P. U. Constitution, "shall be to 
increase spirituality of the young Christians, their training in essential 
church activities, their edification in spiritual knowledge, their instruc- 
tion in Baptist doctrine and history, and their enlistment in all forms 
of missionary endeavors through existing denominational organizations." 
The place of B. Y. P. U. in our state program is one of enlightenment, 
enlargement and enlistment. The B. Y. P. U. is educational. It has 
a curriculum of twelve books, in addition to the topics studied in the 
B. Y. P. U. Quarterly. These books treat upon such subjects as Stew- 
ardship, Church Membership, Sunday School and Church Methods, 
Bible Study, Doctrines, Christian Service, and Baptist History. 

We recommend that all our churches assume B. Y. P. U. as a church 
task, electing the officers, publicly installing them, recognizing them as 
church officers, calling upon them for reports, making them responsible 
to the church and supporting the work financially, with sympathy and 
prayers.

R. Homer Andrews.

The W. M. U. of the Mt. Zion Association met Tuesday morn- 
ing, September 8th, 1925, with Temple Baptist Church, Durham. 
More than two hundred delegates and visitors were in attendance. 

The morning session began at 10:00 o'clock with Dr. C. C. 
Coleman, pastor of the First Baptist church, Durham, conduct- 
ing the devotional. Reports from the several officers were read 
and adopted. 

The Training School committee awarded the Mt. Zion Schol- 
arship to Miss Nellie Page, of Cedar Fork church, which was ac- 
cepted by an expression of gratitude by Miss Page. 

On motion of Mrs. M. W. Buck a finance committee was ap- 
pointed to make recommendations in regard to Training School 
fund. 

Our assistant superintendent, Mrs. J. M. Cheek, made her re- 
port and spoke briefly of the achievements of the year and 
stressed the need for greater efforts in the closing months of the 
year. Mrs. Cheek has served as superintendent since May in the 
absence of Mrs. Brinson. 

At this time we were favored with a solo by Miss Rosa War- 
ren. 

Roll of societies were called and reports given, visitors rec- 
ognized and welcomed. 

Our State Superintendent, Mrs. W. N. Jones, gave us an in- 
spiring address on the subject, "Ye Are My Witnesses". Prayer 
was offered by Mrs. Buck for God's guidance in the appointing of 
committees. 

Committees on time and place, obituary, nominations, and 
resolutions were appointed. An offering was taken for expense 
fund after which the association adjourned for lunch. 



28 Fifty-Sixth Annual Session 

AFTERNOON SESSION 

The devotional for the afternoon session was conducted by 
Mrs. Holland Holton, of Watts Street Baptist church., Durham. 
Minutes of morning session read and approved. On motion of 
Mrs. Buck the secretary was instructed to send a letter of sym- 
pathy to our superintendent^ Mrs. H. F. Brinson, she being un- 
able to attend the meeting. 

We were then favoured with a duet by Mrs. N. T. Yancy, and 
Mr. Norman Matthews. 

Miss Mary Kennedy gave an interesting talk on "Our Young 
People's Work". 

Mrs. Charles E. Maddry, our state chairman of personal 
service, gave a very informing address on personal service, ex- 
plaining recent changes made in reporting same. 

A letter was read from Mrs. H. F. Brinson expressing regret 
at not being able to be present for this meeting. 

Mrs. W. S. Olive gave a short talk on "Rural Societies." Ten 
minutes was now given for open discussion and questions per- 
taining to reporting personal service were discussed. 

In the absence of Mrs. Brinson, Mrs. M. W. Buck spoke on 
"Cooperation," urging societies to cooperate more fully with as- 
sociational officers. 

Miss Wynona Chaney then explained the changes for the year 
emphasizing the closing of the W. M. U. year with the Calendar 
year. 

A memorial service was conducted by Mrs. M. W. Buck with 
prayer by Miss Mattie Andrews. 

The banners were awarded as follows : 

W. M. S. banner for best general work, Watts Street church,

RESOLUTIONS 



We, the committee on Resolutions, representing the Mt. Zion Asso- 
ciation wish to present the following: 

First, we wish to thank the ladies of the Temple Baptist Church for 
their invitation to meet with them and the gracious hospitality offered 
us. We deeply appreciate all that they have done to make our day 
with them one of enjoyment. We shall take home with us a remembrance 
that they are truly "loaf-givers", and also givers of Christian hospi- 
tality. 

Second, we wish to thank our most efficient officers and executive 
committee for their splendid work of the past year and for the effort 
expended in giving us the inspirational program today. 

Third, we wish to thank everyone who has taken part on the program. 

Fourth, we wish to thank Mrs. Brinson for the great work she did 
before her illness. 

Fifth, we wish to extend thanks to Mrs. Cheek who has given of her 
time so faithfully and efficiently in the absence of Mrs. Brinson. 

Sixth, we wish to extend also a welcome to our visitors, Mrs. Jones, 
Mrs. Maddry and others, and welcome into our association Mrs. Cole- 
man. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mrs. C. H. Cates 
Mrs. W. R. Andrews

REPORT OF FINANCE COMMITTEE 

Your committee recommends that, in view of the fact that there 
are no funds in hand for the coming year's expenses, the Executive

to secure at least seventy-five ($75.00) dollars to be used as expense 
fund. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. M. W. Buck

its hospitality, especially the ladies for the delightful dinners. 

Second: That the Association also personally express its thanks to 
Brother McDuffie for his leadership through the church in making our 
stay at Mount Carmel pleasant and helpful.

MOUNT ZION BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



REPORT ON SUNDAY SCHOOL 

No organization of the Church is charged with a more serious duty 
to perform than is the Sunday School. The duty is two fold, namely: 
to teach God's word and to win people to the kingdom. The fact that 
Jesus had picked his best men for these duties, attests the responsibility 
placed upon those who do such work. Our denomination as repre- 
sented by the Southern Baptist Convention, gives an entire department 
to the exclusive work of the Sunday School. The majority of Mis- 
sionary Baptists everywhere will admit that we are attacking a tremen- 
dously big job. 

In the face of this general observation let us see how we measure 
up to our responsibility. In his tract, "Blot Out the Black", our Sun- 
day School Secretary tells us that in 1925 we gained in North Carolina 
in Sunday School membership 26,043. The tract states further that we 
have made gains for the last five years of 91,818, an average yearly gain 
of 18,363. There were reported in the Sunday Schools of the state last 
year, from the same source, 312,840 members. Taking this 312,840 as 
the net invested capital of our denomination in the Sunday School de- 
partment of our state and 26,043 as our net gain, we have earned on 
our investment approximately eight and three-tenths percent on our 
invested capital. While business houses generally would consider this 
a fair margin of profit, provided it could be maintained year after 
year, they would not consider it a safe margin, in face of the fact that 
some years are going to be lean ones wherein the earnings will be small 
as was the case from 1916 to 1920 in which our Secretary tells us that 
we about broke even. So figuring our business from a human stand- 
point we have made no more gains than would be expected. 

How does God look upon the achievement? God counts all His fol- 
lowers in His invested capital. He says, "Go ye into all the world," 
etc. It is a general command, meaning, of course, all his followers. We 
have in our Sunday Schools 312,840 scholars. The tract mentioned 
above states that this figure represents only 86.1 of our church member- 
ship in the state. This means, then, that our state church membership 
is approximately 363,700. This gives 50,860 church members not in 
Sunday School. Now, in our Sunday School enrollment there are many 
who do not belong to the church. In the Sunday School to which I be- 
long there are about twenty per cent who do not belong to the church, 
and doubtless this would be a fair average figure for the state. Twenty 
per cent of our Sunday School membership, 312,840 would give you 
62,568 more church members who are not enlisted in the Sunday Schools. 
This gives a total of 113,428 church members not enlisted. God's net 
working capital would be our net capital of 312,840 plus the church 
membership not listed in Sunday School work, making a total of 
426,268. With this amount as the capital and the average gain for five 
years as the earnings our per cent of earnings would be 4.3. 

These facts give only half the story. They give only how many 
might be taught the Bible in our Sunday Schools. We have not authen- 
tic figures on the other part of the Sunday School's duty, that of win- 
ning people to the kingdom. But it is fair to say that the percentage 
would be even smaller. From the minutes of our last association we 
find that there were 741 baptisms out of a total membership of 14,115. 



22 Fifty-Seventh Annual Session 



There were 94 deaths and 155 exclusions, this gives a net gain of 492. 
This is a net gain of 3.5. Many of these baptisms, perhaps, were not 
directly or indirectly the result of the efforts of the Sunday School. 

How shall we improve. My answer is to train. Training in any 
line of life counts tremendously. People appreciate training and they 
are going to give it a chance. Show us the Sunday School that gives 
constant and adequate training and you will show the school that earns 
reasonable dividends. Sunday Schools will do well to follow the lead 
of the Master in training for service. 

Respectfully submitted, 

H. C. Barbee. 

REPORT ON RELIGIOUS PERIODICALS 

One can hardly over estimate the value of the various religious 
periodicals. Perhaps the deadliest foe which saps the life of our 
Christian enterprises is mis-information or the lack of information. 
The old adage "That what one is not up on, one is sure to be down on," 
is certainly true in the realm of religious endeavor. It is absolutely 
impossible to work up any enthusiastic support for any movement about 
which the people know little or nothing. Ignorance stands perhaps next 
to sin itself in the paralyzing effect upon a positive program for right- 
eousness. Indeed much of our ignorance is downright sin. For we 
are responsible not for what we are, but what we might have been. 

Realizing the incalculable importance of proper information our 
denomination has done and is doing its best to meet this crying demand 
both southwide and locally. 

Our people are more or less familiar with what is being done, how- 
ever a word about the papers at our disposal might not be amiss. The 
Royal Service for the adults and World Comrades for the young peo- 
ple got out by the Woman's Missionary Union, which is Auxiliary to 
the Southern Baptist Convention, and Home and Foreign fields, the 
missionary journal, of the Southern Baptist Convention printed by the 
Sunday School Board, completely cover the mission fields. They pro- 
vide definite programs for all the various branches of their work, also 
give full and complete reports of work done the world around, as well 
as furnish most inspiring and illuminating articles along lines of gen- 
eral interest. Wherever you find large groups reading these periodicals 
and following the programs and suggestions laid out by them, you will 
invariably find constructive work being done. 

The Biblical Recorder, the mouthpiece, so to speak, of North Caro- 
lina Baptists, is of inestimable worth to our religious program. As it 
has been discussed under special order only general mention is necessary. 

Speaking of these four publications with reference to their bearing 
on our denominational life, the writer feels that our united, continued 
and enthusiastic cooperation must rely upon these agencies for the 
major part of our driving power. Our denominational leaders, not be- 
ing able to be present in person, must of necessity transmit their per- 
sonalities and messages through the printed page. Our religious pub- 
lications are to our denominational body what the sensory nerves are 
to the physical body. Our motor system awaits the stimulus of the 
sensory operations. Just so our vast denominational potential forces 
are awaiting the stimulating touch of a soul surcharged with a heaven- 
born power. These publications are the God given channels through 
which these energizing currents may flow. It is to be hoped that our 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 23 



people will increasingly realize this fact and avail themselves of this 
wonderful opportunity by subscribing to these papers, and becoming 
missionaries of intelligence, urging others to connect up with the great 
power house of denominational energy. 

Pastors, officers and teachers can do no finer service than placing 
every home possible in vital contact with the great stream of helpful 
influence which flows continually through these channels of blessings. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Trela D. Collins. 

REPORT ON HOSPITAL 

Only time and space limit the wonderful story of healing and mercy 
the Baptist Hospital has to tell. 

Five thousand patients (5*000), nearly one thousand of these either 
charity or part pay, fathers, mothers and children from the country 
and the town came and all were received, and for the most part sent 
back well and happy. 

During the last year there were about 1800 patients; over 400 were 
charity. These came from all parts of the state. These cases cost the 
hospital around $20,000.00. The number of charity grows every year. 
It looks as if we will have to care for 500 this year, or turn many 
worthy ones away to die. The question is, which one must we send 
back. 

We have wonderful accommodations and facilities for helping the 
sick. We have a death record that demonstrates the power in healing 
the sick and yet our people cannot come because our churches have not 
observed Mother's Day and offered to help care for them. 

We shall be compelled to turn down numbers of these worthy ones 
unless something is done or somebody rises up and supplies the needed 
fund. We must pay our nurses, we must provide food, proper com- 
forts. Our contribution will be the answer as to what will be done 
with those who call from all over the state. 

Our women are trying to build a nurses home. This would enlarge 
the opportunities for caring for charity cases. God speed the day 
when one and all will stand by and protect it. 

Respectfully submitted, 

J. R. Cantrell. 

REPORT ON RELIEF AND ANNUITY 

The Relief and Annuity Board of the Southern Baptist Convention, 
through its relief fund and through its annuity fund, is endeavoring to 
provide for preachers, their widows and dependent orphans in the best 
possible way. The permanent relief fund is still under $600,000.00 and 
the relief beneficiaries are receiving on an average of less than $150.00 
a year. There are nearly 12,000 beneficiaries. If the board is to pro- 
vide properly for them it must have a much larger income. 

Members of the annuity fund who have reached their 68th birthday 
or who have become permanently disabled, are receiving the maximum 
amount promised in the membership certificate, namely, $500.00 per 
year. 

However, because of the great burden of financing these funds the 
convention appointed a special laymen's' committee to aid the Relief 



24 Fifty-Seventh Annual Session 



and Annuity Board in working out a new plan of relief. The report of 
this committee was adopted by the convention when it met in Houston, 
Texas, May, 1926. This plan is to be known as the New Service An- 
nuity Plan. 

It is available for all preachers, missionaries, and other workers of 
the denomination in active service, their widows and orphan children. 

HOW IT OPERATES 

A — 1. The disabled before the age of 65 shall be entitled to an an- 
nuity of 40 per cent of his average salary during the five years pre- 
ceding disability, provided he has been a member of the plan for one 
year, and provided that during the first five years of the plan the dis- 
ability annuity shall not exceed the minimum age retirement annuity, 
viz: $600.00. 

2. The retired beneficiaries at the age of 65, or later at their option, 
are to receive a retirement annuity of approximately 50 per cent of the 
average salary on a basis of 35 years of service. 

B — 1. Upon the death of a member after the first year of member- 
ship, and before reaching the age of 65, or before retirement if later, 
the widow shall receive a cash payment of 75 per cent of the member's 
salary for the past year, provided the same shall not exceed $1,000.00. 

2. The widow shall receive a maximum annuity of three fifths of 
what the husband was receiving, and a minimum annuity of $300.00 
provided the same is not in excess of 50 per cent of the minister's 
salary during the last year of service. 

C. Minor children will receive upon the death of their father $100.00 
each per year, up to the age of 18 with educational allowances thereafter 
up to the age of 21. 

HOW IT IS FINANCED 

Every member of the plan, shall, from the time his membership 
begins, pay to the Board 2% per cent of his salary, and the church or 
denominational agency employing him shall pay an amount equivalent 
to 8 per cent. 

The holders of a certificate in the Annuity Department as at pres- 
ent operated, may continue his membership in the department by pay- 
ing his regular dues, as heretofore, and in addition thereto may ac- 
quire membership in the Service Annuity Plan by proper payment. 

For further details concerning the plan, write the Relief and An- 
nuity Board of the Southern Baptist Convention, 1226 Athletic Club 
Bldg., Dallas, Texas. 

Respectfully submitted, 

C. R. PlTTARD. 

REPORT ON TEMPERANCE 

In this report you expect me to deal mainly with the drink situa- 
tion, but there are other things that we as Christians should consider in 
this connection. We possibly eat too much, see too much, hear too 
much, say too much as well as drink too much. 

The bootleg whiskey and the bootleggers are responsible for almost 
unlimited crime and scores of deaths. We as Christians are too much 
at ease in Zion. We should still preach and teach against the liquor 
business, and let our young people know where the church stands on 
this matter. We look in on our courts and there we will find that the 
majority of the offenders are the younger men. The situation has been 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 25 

greatly improved and is improving every day, but for us to have a 
complete victory we must keep on the job of informing the people. 
We should stand with the officer of the law who is trying to enforce 
the law. We should compliment the judge who makes the punishment 
severe enough to make the breaker of the law think. We have men who 
say that light wines and beer should be sold, let us watch such a 
man, he is the enemy of prohibition, he says that prohibition has been 
a failure, yet he knows better. We know that the situation is still 
bad, and will continue so till we who name the name of God will let 
our influence be felt in every community, and uphold the law and not 
respect the one who breaks it. 

Respectfully submitted, 

W. G. Hall. 

HISTORIAN'S REPORT TO' THE MOUNT ZION ASSOCIATION 
Bethesda Church 

Pursuant to appointment on the 5th Sunday in March, 1884, a Pres- 
bytery consisting of Rev. J. H. Layton, M. S. Ferrell and J. C. Hocutt, 
and Deacons W. J. Suitt, R. H. D. Gooch, George Stallings, and S. J. 
Ferrell, of Olive Branch church; and Walter Barbee, of Berea church; 
and W. H. Weatherspoon, of Cedar Fork church, met at Haye's school 
house in Durham county, N. C, to organize a Missionary Baptist 
church. Prayer was offered by Rev. M. S. Ferrell. 

On motion Rev. M. S. Ferrell was elected chairman, and Rev. J. C. 
Hocutt was elected clerk. The object of the meeting was then stated, 
and twenty presented letters of application from Cedar Fork church, 
one from Mt. Hermon church of the Raleigh Association and two from 
Berea church of the Mt. Zion Association. A church covenant, articles 
of faith, and rules of decorum were then read and adopted by the then 
organized church. 

There seems to be no record as to when or why the church assumed 
the name of "Bethesda". The deacons then elected were W. Gaston 
Page, Joseph Hopson and Paschal Cook. Bro. Chas. W. Morris was 
elected clerk. These brethren have all finished their work and gone to 
their reward. They were all men of sterling worth, and wrought well. 
They loved their church, and were always loyal to its support with their 
prayers, means and presence. Many were brought into the church 
through their influence. Their memories are held very precious and 
sacred by those who knew them. 

The first pastor, Rev. J. H. Layton, was one of the pioneer preach- 
ers of his day. He served the church only a short while. He was old 
and feeble and the task was too great for him and he resigned. Rev. 
Jesse Howell, another old veteran of the Cross and a very saintly char- 
acter, was then called. But he, too, was old and feeble, and remained 
only a short time and resigned. These two old brethren, and brothers 
of like faith with them, laid the foundation on which we are today 
building. They contended for the "Faith once delivered to the Saints." 
They did their work in the midst of peril, poverty, and opposition. 
But, they patiently toiled with but little compensation, and went home 
to their reward which a righteous judge would give them in that day. 

Rev. J. C. Hocutt, then a comparatively young man, was called as 
pastor in February, 1886, and served the church very efficiently for 
two years and resigned, and moved to Chapel Hill, N. C. During his 



26 Fifty-Seventh Annual Session 



ministry the church began to grow. There were added to the member- 
ship of the church about forty. Brother Hocutt was a good and compe- 
tent pastor, and left an influence for good that still lives in the older 
members of Bethesda church. 

Following Brother Hocutt, J. F. MacDuffie assumed the pastorate 
of the church, and served seven years. During his term the member- 
ship increased to one hundred and forty-four. This church never has 
been very liberal in its contributions to Missions. The first year of its 
organization it contributed $8.75 for missions. Last year they re- 
ported over $500 for missions. This shows some progress, but by no 
means reaching up to its ability. Now, that it is taking on new life, 
with greater opportunities and better advantages, may we not expect 
larger results. 

Rev. J. W. Atkinson, of the Central Association, was called and 
served five years. He resigned in 1901. J. F. MacDuffie was again 
called and served two years. Rev. C. A. Sigmon was called and served 
two years, and resigned to attend the Seminary in Louisville, Ky. 
Rev. O. W. Triplett, then pastor of the church at West Durham, ac- 
cepted the pastorate as supply. He served only a few months when 
Rev. H. W. Baucom, a student then at Wake Forest College was called. 
He served two years and Rev. E. M. Lassater was called and served four 
years. Rev. G. T. Mills was then called, and continued as pastor four 
years, when Rev. J. T. Gilespie was called and served only a few 
months. Rev. I. L. Price accepted a call and served only a few months. 
Rev. G. T. Mills received a call the second time and served less than a 
year, when the present pastor, Dr. L. E. Freeman, professor at Mere- 
dith College, was called in 1922 and has served ever since. 

Under Dr. Freeman's administration, the church has made wonder- 
ful progress materially. They have remodeled the old building and 
turned it around and converted it into a number of Sunday School 
rooms; built an annex in front, and using that as the main auditorium 
and have it all well arranged and fitted up for regular services. Have 
gone to half time preaching services. This indicates progress. 

Situated as this church is, on a national highway connecting Durham 
and Raleigh where people are attracted, and fast building nice conven- 
ient homes along the highway, and a large well equipped high school 
adjoining the church grounds, and surrounded by a large number of 
children conveniently located, with good roads leading to it, there is no 
reason why Bethesda Church cannot by judicious and careful manage- 
ment with its present beloved and efficient pastor, cooperating with 
him in every good word and work, become one of our strongest and 
most progressive country churches in the Mount Zion Association. 
They have opportunities more favorable than many of our churches in 
the rural districts. They have a pastor second to none in our Asso- 
ciation. With these advantages surely they ought to rise up to their 
ability and let the world feel their influence for the glory of the king- 
dom of our Lord and His Christ. 

The foundation and background of this work was laid by the prayers 
and sacrifices of men and women, most of whom are now silent in 
death. They loved their church, and were willing to spend and be spent, 
for its future progress and prosperity. They were poor in this world's 
goods, but they never applied to any of our Boards for help. They 
lived together in fellowship and communion with God and each other. 
Their children rise up today and call them blessed, because of the 
work they did in laying such a foundation for their future. 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 27 



Roberson Grove Church 

This church dates its origin back in the sixties. We have no means 
of ascertaining the exact date, as it was then on the territory of either 
the Flat River or Beulah Association. After the organization of the 
Mount Zion Association the executive committee of the Mount Zion As- 
sociation were influenced by Brother Mark Durham (then a member 
of Belvin Church, near Neuse river in a remote part of the Mount Zion 
Association. The Belvin Church soon afterward went down and most 
of its members joined Roberson Grove Church after its organization) 
»to send a missionary to this point to preach the gospel. There had 
been a church organization at this point many years previous, called 
by the name "Mount Calvary," but it had gone down, and its members 
had scattered, and many of them had joined other churches. They had 
had no meeting of any kind for many years previous to the new organi- 
zation. This, then, was really a reorganization of the old Mount 
Calvary Church. The old organization never built a house of worship, 
but worshipped in Colclough school house, standing where Roberson 
Grove Church house now stands. 

The executive committee of the Mount Zion Association responded 
to the request of Brother Durham, and sent Rev. Jesse Howell, one of 
the pioneer preachers of his day. He was a preacher of rare ability 
in his younger days, and was very much beloved for his consecration 
and devotion to the cause he loved so dearly. He met the congrega- 
tion monthly when he was able. He was then in his dotage, and fre- 
quently failed to fill his appointments, but his preaching had its effect, 
and the truth was received and a revival began in August lasting a 
week. He was unable to attend, but Brother Durham, assisted by 
others in the community, continued the meeting and many professed 
faith in Christ, after which the church was reorganized, and many were 
baptized from the results of the revival held, and the name was changed 
from "Mount Calvary" to "Roberson Grove". Among the number pro- 
fessing faith in Christ were two old men, each with large families. These 
two old men, A. G. Ferrell and J. P. Roberson, concluded they needed 
a better house in which to worship, so they consulted each other, and 
one agreed to furnish the lot for the house and lumber with which to 
build it, and the other to hire carpenters to build it. In a few days 
the house was built on the spot where Brother Roberson first saw the 
light, and the church was called Roberson Grove for him. 

Rev. R. A. Patterson was called as pastor of the new church and 
served until his death. A very flourishing Sunday School was organ- 
ized with seventy-five members. Thus the work of the church began. 
Rev. R. A. Patterson began his pastorate in 1880. During the forty- 
six years the church has had thirteen pastors, averaging about three 
and a half years to the pastorate. Six of them served only one year. 
This perhaps accounts for their absence from the session of the Asso- 
ciation so frequently. The progress the church has made, in some 
respect, is to be commended while in others it is to be regretted. The 
first fifteen years of its history was very encouraging and hopeful. 
The ingathering of souls was about one hundred per cent more than 
it has been during the thirty-one years since. The first year of its or- 
ganization the church membership numbered twenty-eight. At the 
close of the first fifteen years they numbered one liundred and sixty- 
seven. The ingathering since, during the thirty-one years, is only about 
seventy-eight. This is caused perhaps by indifference and neglect. 



28 Fifty-Seventh Annual Session 



The years the church has made its greater progress in Christian de- 
velopment was the years it had the greatest ingathering and largest 
contributions to the cause. 

Another startling fact is, how God has blessed the community with 
prosperity in material things. As we pass along the way we see splen- 
did residences, fine farms, and general prosperity. Why God's cause 
should be left out and neglected, is a question which needs to be con- 
sidered well. For five years the church has not been represented in 
the Association, whether to blame the church or the officials of the 
church, is a question in the minds of the Association. The Master says, 
"Go" and "Give." Satan says stop and withhold. To do the former 
means progress heavenward, to do the latter means want in spiritual 
growth. God loves a cheerful giver, but deplores the spirit that with- 
holds from and neglects His cause. May the God of love and mercy 
arouse the church from their lethargy, and help them to see their mis- 
take and assume their responsibility before they have to go before 
His bar of justice. 

REPORT ON ORPHANAGE 

As Baptists. we are justly proud of our Orphanage at Thomasville. 
No object lies quite so near the hearts of our Baptist Brotherhood, and 
deservedly so. What a great institution under the Grace of God it has 
grown to be and with greater things yet to come. On Nov. 11th, 1885, 
the first child was received. During the forty-one years of its con- 
tinued growth 2,442 boys and girls have found a home and have been 
given a chance to lead better lives, and to become more useful men 
and women. Can you imagine what would have become of these chil- 
dren but for the protecting arm and sheltering care of the Orphanage 
during their tender and impressionable years. As has been well said 
"save an adult and you save a unit, save, a child and you save a mul- 
tiplication table. A light house is better than a life boat." 

The Orphanage has sent and is sending boys and girls into all vo- 
cations; some to preach the unsearchable riches of our Lord and Mas- 
ter; some to become professional and business men, some to become the 
makers of happy Christian homes. Ought it not and does it not rejoice 
our hearts to know that we have had, and are having some part in 
this good work? 

At our annual meeting in June our very capable general manager, 
Brother Kesler, reported an enrollment of 581 at Thomasville, 110 at 
the Kennedy Home, children aided in their home with their mothers 
373, total number of children aided by the Orphanage 954. Mothers' 
aid, under the very capable direction of Miss Hattie Edwards, is be- 
coming a very important part of our Orphanage work. In view of the 
ever increasing demands upon our Orphanage, I strongly urge and 
recommend that every Sunday School not already doing so, designate a 
certain Sunday in each month to be known as Orphanage Sunday and 
that the offering for the Orphanage be just as large as possible on that 
day; that each Sunday School take as many copies of Charity and 
Children as possible and that our various societies send useful boxes 
and gifts. 

Specially do I most earnestly urge as we near the season of Thanks- 
giving that we all have as our slogan, "ONE DAY FOR THE OR- 
PHANAGE". Again your committee urges that you give our Orphan- 
age your heart's unfailing sympathy, your most earnest prayers and 
a liberal portion of your means, remembering in the language of an- 
other that —

REPORT OF DENOMINATIONAL SCHOOLS 

Long ago Paul, writing to Timothy, set the ideal for Christian Edu- 
cation in these words: "For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but 
of power, and of love and of a sound mind." 

As pointed out by Dean Brown, of Yale, Paul's ideal means that 
the young Christian needs that equipment which may be called "Stamina, 
Sympathy and Scholarship." For well rounded personality, these fac- 
tors must be developed. Furthermore, they can and ought to be de- 
veloped; and any system of education, which does not develop these, 
is defective. 

For Stamina, that ability which enables one to "stand-up-to" wheth- 
er physical, intellectual or spiritual, can and ought to be developed; 
likewise, sympathy, which means love for God and one's fellows, and 
likewise a sound mind, which the great apostle regarded as one of the 
gifts of the good God, can and ought to be developed. 

North Carolina Baptists believe that Christian education can and 
does develop these factors and to this end are pursuing a broad and 
systematic educational program. The ideals are the same as in other 
years, but methods and appeal change for the reason that our prob- 
lems change. At one time Baptists owned some fourteen High Schools 
in North Carolina. Now, however, the convention has only one high 
school, viz, Boiling Springs. The Home Board has only four, viz: 
Sylva, Haywood, Fruitland and Mountain View. At one time there 
were some three or four times as many students in our high schools as 
there were in college. For the school year 1925-1926 there were nearly 
twice as many in our colleges as in our high schools. The ideal and 
need for Christian education has not changed, but the type or grade of 
student to whom we must appeal has changed, and now Baptists are 
concentrating on Junior Colleges and A. 1 Colleges, seeking, if possi- 
ble, to train future leaders and through them reach as many people 
as possible. 

The following enrollment for 1925-1926 speaks for itself. There were 
enrolled 1081 high school students and 1787 college students. In May 
and June, 1926, our high schools graduated 174 and our colleges grad- 
uated 196. In our high schools and colleges we had 238 preparing for 
the ministry and 32 for foreign mission service. The high schools of 
the home board enrolled 533 students. Among them there were 13 
studying for the ministry. In addition to these Wake Forest enrolled 
in summer schools 790. 

These facts are encouraging and God has wonderfully prospered 
North Carolina Baptists and has given to them large responsibilities 
and opportunities. Educationally, the task ahead of us is to see to it 
that our institutions provide the best to the end that the leaders shall 
be equipped with "Stamina, Sympathy and Scholarship." To accom- 
plish this end money in greater abundance must be given by our people, 
for our institutions must have buildings, annual support and endowment. 
At present 1047, about 40% of those enrolled in our schools do not live 
in buildings owned by these schools. The income from endowment 
from all of our schools is only one-sixth as much as the state furnishes 
the University alone from taxes for its support. You can readily see 



30 Fifty-Seventh Annual Session 



that unless we come to the rescue of our schools in endowment, cur- 
rent support and patronage, we face grave problems. If, however, we 
rally to the cooperative program as liberally as we did to the Seventy- 
five Million campaign, we can do all of this and finally relieve our 
schools of the pressing debt problem. Our schools combined owe $1,- 
210,000 at the present writing. Our good women are memorializing the 
state convention to pay off the Meredith debt by the close of 1929. We 
honor our sisters for this wonderful forward step and hope and pray 
that it will be adopted by the Convention. We further hope that all of 
our debts will be enbraced in the action of the convention so we can 
celebrate our centennial year — 1930 — clear of debt in every way. 

This is entirely possible, if we adopt the cooperative program and 
all of our churches go back to their quota raised annually during the 
Seventy-five Million campaign. Your committee urges therefore the 
Mt. Zion Association to make these two mile posts its goal for 1927.

REPORT OF W. M. U. WORK 

As we come to the end of another year's work in our Missionary 
Union we recount with joy the unspeakable blessings that have attended 
us on our way. 

As we have labored together with one great thought before us that 
we were "colaborers with God," our hearts have rejoiced as we have 
seen the work of the Master go forward. 

Perhaps we may not have accomplished as great things as in past 
years, things that were visible to us, but we feel that the year has been 
one of constructive building and planning, the outcome of which will 
tell in days to come. 

It has been a joy to be associated with our efficient, and enthusiastic 
Executive Board, and to catch some of the zeal of our beloved super- 
intendent as she has given of her self unreservedly to the planning for 
the progress of our work. It has been her aim this year to know more 
intimately the individual society, and in any way possible to instruct, 
and strengthen them in their work, and results show, that great good 
has been accomplished along this line. 

We have in our Association A-l societies as follows: W. M. S. 
eight, Y. W. A. three, G. A. and R. A. five, Sunbeams three with sev- 
eral others reaching from six to nine points of the ten required by this 
standard. 

New societies have been organized as follows: W. M. S. one, Sun- 
beams two, R. A.'s two, and G. A.'s three. 

Over and above our contributions to the 1926 program (which by 
the way we stress as first importance) we have contributed to our 
nurse's home at Winston-Salem, our Training School Scholarship fund, 
Associational and State Expense fund, and gifts to our Baptist hos- 
pital. Our work along this line of mission study has gone forward in 
a splendid way, and has had much to do with stimulating work along 
all other lines. 

Through our personal service work, cheer and comfort, have been 
carried to numberless individuals, and the W. M. U. life has been 
strengthened thereby. 

Our supreme need is an associational field worker to visit and en- 
courage our weaker societies, and we are planning and praying to that 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 31 



end. Another important need is the cooperation of the pastors of rural 
churches in giving information from month to month, and encouraging 
their women to cooperate with the W. M. U. and arrange for credits 
to W. M. U. objects. 

Our union has sustained a great loss this year in the death of Mrs. 
M. W. Buck. She was our former superintendent, and knowing the 
work so well, was one of our advisory board, and her wise counsel was 
greatly missed, also her presence at our annual meeting. We have tried, 
however, to strive to reach the ideal she so much wished for us. It is 
our hope through the coming year to work more diligently than ever 
before to enlist as far as possible every church in our association in 
our W. M. U. work. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. J. L. Gates. 

REPORT ON B. Y. P. U. 

Mt. Zion Association has many things of which it may be justly 
proud, but one of the greatest of these is that within its borders was 
held the first convention of North Carolina B. Y. P. U. The work in 
this state had its inception in the latter part of the year 1909, and the 
first convention was held in Durham at the Temple Baptist church, in 
1910, with representatives from ten unions. 

A slight insight into the growth of the work may be seen in the fact 
that there is not a city in North Carolina large enough to conveniently 
care for the 1600 delegates that attend the annual sessions, and provide 
for the increasing numbers. The 1926 session was held at Meredith 
College, and the 1927 session is scheduled for the same place. 

Some interest may be noted in a few figures. There are B. Y. P. 
U.'s in 1150 Baptist churches in North Carolina, and in Baptist schools 
and colleges, with a total of 1800 unions in the entire state. But there 
are more than 1,000 churches in the state without even one B. Y. P. 
U. Mt. Zion Association has 52 churches. Last year there were 56 
unions in 25 of these churches; that is, 27 churches with no union. 

Three interesting facts encourage us in B. Y. P. U. in the state. 
We have two field workers, as fine in the South, who devote their en- 
tire time to training schools, assemblies, conventions, and conferences: 
Perry Morgan, general secretary, and Miss Winnie Rickett, Junior- 
Intermediate leader. Then the work is fostered by the Baptist State 
Convention, and the Sunday School Board of the Southern Baptist Con- 
version, which commends it as being worth while. Finally, our mem- 
bers ire in reality training themselves for definite kingdom service. In 
addition to the great work of the regular programs, there is a definite 
curriculum of twenty books for extra study, and hundreds of awards 
are issued every week to unions throughout the entire state. These 
books covering every phase of denominational life: inspirational, devo- 
tional, doctrinal, Bible study, missionary. 

All of the truly great movements of our advancement in all lines 
have been targets for skeptics, and the B. Y. P. U. has not been 
spared. Its sixteen years of life in North Carolina justifies the state- 
ment, that will stand undisputed, that no agency in the entire life of 
the church has done as much to train and equip leaders for the church 
as has the B. Y. P. U. The truth of that statement is self-evident. 
Yet it is rumored that there are a few pastors in this association who 
believe that the B. Y. P. U. is an extra-useless organization, and will 



32 FiftvSeventh Annual Session 

not encourage the young people in such work in their churches. Re- 
member such brethren in your prayers that they may see the light, be- 
fore their young people have left them for fields where they may really 
serve. 

This Association does not need to be told of the work the B. Y. P. U. 
as an organization is doing. It is revolutionizing the church life of 
this day, and putting the church of Christ on a plane of usefulness it 
has never known before, because there are trained and consecrated lead- 
ers among the young people to carry on the great active work of king- 
dom building. The Lord is to be blessed for such an organization, and 
such leaders as Perry Morgan, and Winnie Rickett. 

Every church in this Association can have a B. Y. P. U. Perhaps 
not all three, but at least one, and this report would commend to all of 
the churches this undertaking. Never feel that your church is moving 
forward until you have made a place for the young people to help you 
carry it forward for the King. Make the organization a part of the 
church program, and the B. Y. P. U. will become the church of the 
future. It is a great means by which the hopes and wishes of God's 
children may be perpetuated. The church will not stand on haphazard 
methods of training. The B. Y. P. U. helps solves the whole problem, 
and places training for proper church membership as the goal for its 
accomplishment. The work and the workers should have and be assured 
of having the constant understanding sympathy, and unceasing prayers 
of our Christian people in this and every association.

C. S. Green.

REPORT ON STATE AND HOME AND FOREIGN MISSIONS 

In our State, Home and Foreign Missions reports, that which should 
be ostoundinglly and alarmingly unusual is becoming deplorablly com- 
monplace, to the shame of our churches, the hindrance of God's work in 
the world, and dishonoring to the great head of the church, our Lord 
and Saviour Jesus Christ, in that we fail so wretchedly in accomplish- 
ing in a large way the task that has been assigned us, and year after 
year come with reports of debts, insufficient funds, underpaid workers, 
curtailment of our operations and other evidences that instead of ag- 
gressively forcing the enemies' fortifications, we ourselves are on the 
defensive and threatened with the necessity for retreat. Please note: 

1. That, as usual in these reports, the fields, near and far, vast in 
extent, invitingly promising, are white unto the harvest and ready for 
the reapers. Perhaps never in the history of God's people have oppor- 
tunities been so urgent and the possibilities so challenging. If our farm- 
ers had half the encouragement for prosecuting their work that the 
churches have for evangelizing the world, beginning here at home, we 
should be on the verge of such an era of material prosperity as we have 
never known. And, thank God, we have the financial means, if we will 
but give them; and the men, youth alert, trained, consecrated, enthusias- 
tic and possessing clear vision of duty and responsibility, to lead us to 
victory, and from victory to conquest. 

2. As usual in these reports, we note that God has wrought gra- 
ciously and even marvelously, with what we have given him of men and 
money, through our missionary agencies and our representatives on the 
fields at home and abroad. It would seem that by His providential 
leadings and His manifest blessings on the labors of our missionaries 
God is challenging His people to plan and execute great things for 
Him, saying, as it were, "bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, 
that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith 
saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not pour you out a bllessing, that there 
shall not be room to receive it." 

3. As usual, our State, Home and Foreign Boards are hampered 
and hindered in the work entrusted to them by our churches because 
of huge debts and consequently unavoidable but wasteful interest 
charges; missionary offerings that, compared with our per capita wealth 
and the colossal expenditures for material wants and luxurious ex- 
travagances, seem pitifully insignificant, if not picayune. The result 
is fields insufficiently manned, church, school and educational working 
plants inadequately equipped and incomes wholly insufficient for im- 
mediate needs, and curtailments on every hand that are well-night dis- 
astrous. 



34 Fifty-Seventh Annual Session 



(1) Under consecrated and able leadership our state work is being 
pushed vigorously with results that should inspire generous liberality 
and correspondingly enlarged undertakings. The Biblical Recorder for 
September 29, 1926, contained a most informing summary of achieve- 
ments by our State Convention since it's organization in 1830. God has 
wrought gloriously through His people during the years. But there 
are 2,300 churches in the state, of which 600 are entirely non-co- 
operating and non-contributing to denominational objects and entirely 
unrelated to Kingdom-building work outside of their purely local en- 
vironments. There are many villages and small town communities 
where there have been large investments of capital in manufacturing 
plants, without adequate church or religious advantages; and in many 
instances without Baptist work of any kind. It is stated that fully 
2,000 of our churches are in purely rural communities with less than 
1,000 population down to exclusively rural environments, with small, 
one-room, unattractive and poorly equipped buildings wholly unfit for 
meeting the demands of growing intelligence in the respective com- 
munities. Added to the fact that one-fourth of our churches are non- 
contributing is the further fact that the remaining three-fourths gave 
the sum of $450,000 toward the cooperative program when $3,000,000 
could have been paid had our entire Baptist body given on the tithe 
basis, we see how pitifully small and insignificant is our response to 
the needs of the work that lies so close to our very doors. Here is a 
problem confronting each individual Baptist. 

(2) Some of the outstanding problems of our Home Mission Board 
are summed up by Dr. E. P. Aldridge, from which we gather the fol- 
lowing: 100 churches throughout our South-land, in communities of 
from 1,000 to 6,278, have no white Baptist church; more than 13,000,000, 
whites and negro, wholly unevangelized and not affiliated with any 
church, reside within the bounds of our Southern Baptist Convention; 
while nearly 9,000 white Baptist churches failed to report a single bap- 
tism in 1923. More than 6,500 churches in our South-land have no Sun- 
day Schools; more than 14,000 churches are without organized young 
people's work of any kind, and, most amazing, about 5,500 churches 
are without meeting houses of any kind. We are accustomed to boast 
of our numbers, but such a tabulation, and that but partial and frag- 
mentary, should effectively cure us of that unseemly habit. Yet, in the 
face of such south-wide conditions we have so reduced our contributions 
to our Home Mission work as to seriously cripple the Society organ- 
ized to direct it. 

(3) The Foreign Mission Board still carries an indebtedness of 
$727,000, after having applied the $811,344.11 Christmas offering to its 
indebtedness of last year. In a brief paragraph Dr. Love presents 
other problems: "The board has for more than three years denied Mis- 
sionaries all equipment, such as residences, church buildings, school and 
hospital buildings, etc., and has now, for some time, discontinued ap- 
pointments of missionaries, although there has been sad depletion of 
the missionary staff by death and resignations. The distress and disas- 
ter of these denials of missionary needs, may, to some degree, be esti- 
mated by the pathetic appeals contained in missionary letters." The 
total receipts for the Foreign Board from the cooperative program for 
the year 1925 was $1,071,834.16; total from all sources $2,123,191.32, 
including $240,613.05 designated funds and the Christmas "Love" offer- 
ing for the debt. This represents the response of 500,000 Baptists to 
the urge of the Christ and the cry of a lost world. Are we satisfied 
with that response? 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 35 



4. As usual, many of our churches and large numbers of the mem- 
bers in the churches, are indifferent and utterly unconcerned as to the 
actual status of our great missionary enterprises because uninformed 
and luke-warm in regard to the requirements and obligations laid upon 
them by the command of our Lord to the whole body of His disciples 
to give the whole gospel to the whole world. Here is the crux of the 
whole matter and it is at this vital point that we need have a real 
searching of heart. Our only claim to existence, our only claim to the 
name of Missionary Baptists, rests upon our obedience to our Lord's 
commands. We cease to be Christians, much more to be the Baptist 
type of Christians, when we fail to obey the plain and explicit com- 
mands of Christ. The command to give the gospel to the whole world 
is as plain and explicit as the command to be baptized. 

5. We would note and stress in an unusual manner, the practical 
value of the plan worked out by our leaders for making our offerings 
to the Convention or South-wide objects of benevolence, known as the 
cooperative program. This method combines the least possible friction 
with the greatest known fairness in the collection and distribution of 
all our Mission funds, and therefore should be adopted and complied 
with. If the suggestion be followed that all funds be promptly re- 
mitted it will secure the steady flow of funds into the respective treas- 
uries and, to that extent, help save interest charges. But it should be 
remembered that every dollar given is divided among seven objects, 
and that thus divided one dollar does not go far. 

In conclusion, your committee respectfully urges a fresh study of 
the word of God as it bears upon our duty and responsibility; a re- 
study of our missionary operations in their enlarged form, especially as 
it is related to the question of State and Home and Foreign Missions; 
a more general and generous participation by churches and individuals 
in the collossal task of evangelizing the world; enlarged liberality by 
those already enlisted; and a prayerfully conscientious response to the 
urgent and impressive appeals that are constantly being made to us 
through our State, Home and Foreign Mission Boards. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Martin - W. Buck. 



PROCEEDINGS 

Woman's Missionary Union 



MORNING SESSION 

The W. M. U. of Mt. Zion Association convened with Anti- 
och Church on September 12th, with Mrs. J. M. Cheek, super- 
intendent, presiding. 

Rev. C. S. Green conducted the devotional and Rev. T. D. 
Collins led in prayer. The welcome was extended by Mrs. S. L. 
Ray to which Mrs. C. C. Council responded. 

About twenty societies responded to the roll call. The re- 
ports of the various officers of the Association showed marked 
progress in the work of the year^ the message of the superintend- 
ent being especially encouraging. Mrs. Edna R. Harris, State 
Corresponding Secretary, gave an address, subject, "Launch 
Out". 

A round table discussion of the various phases of the work 
was then taken up. Rev. T. D. Collins, Mrs. C. E. Byrd and 
Mrs. Harris taking part. 

The question of the Training School Scholarship was left 
with the Training School and Evecutive Committee. There was 
no application for this year. Committees were then appointed 
and following this was adjournment for lunch. 

The afternoon session was opened with devotional by Mrs. 
C. C. Coleman. Minutes of the morning session were read. Miss 
Wynona Chaney discussed our Religious Periodicals, urging W. 
M. S. members to keep themselves informed as to kingdom work. 
Mrs. Harris spoke on "W. M. U. Specials, Training School 
Margaret Fund and Bible Fund." 

Mrs. W. M. Upchurch then took charge and conducted the 
Young People's program, presenting Mrs. D. E. Ward, who 
spoke on Y. W. A. and G. A. work, and Mrs. G. E. Boyd, who 
discussed Sunbeam work. 



Fifty-Seventh Annual Session 37 

A message from the Training School was brought by Miss 
Nellie Page, the recipient of the scholarship last year. Cards 
of appreciation from Rev. M. W. Buck were read acknowledg- 
ing the remembrances sent by this association to Mrs. Buck 
during her last illness. 

Mrs. John Vernon conducted an impressive memorial exer- 
cise, calling the roll of those who had passed away during the 
year. A special tribute to the life of Mrs. M. W. Buck was read 
emphasizing her splendid work as superintendent of this Asso- 
ciation. This service was concluded with a solo by Mrs. Homer 
Andrews. Prayer by Mrs. J. M. Whitted. The report of the 
registration committee showed 208 present. 

The banners were presented to the following: W. M. S. 
banner to Grace church, Mission Study banner to Watts Street 
church, Y. W. A. to Angier Avenue, Sunbeam banner to Temple, 
G. A. Banner to First church, R. A. banner to Olive Chapel. 
They were awarded by Miss Mary Kennedy after which the 
meeting adjourned. Mrs. J. L. Gates, Secretary.

CONSTITUTION 



Article 1. This body shall be known as the Mount Zion Baptist 
Association of North Carolina. 

Membership 

Art. 2. It shall be composed of the ordained ministers, belonging 
to, and members chosen annually by, the several churches belonging 
to this body, who, by presenting letters from their respective churches, 
certify their appointment, and shall thereby be entitled to seats. Each 
church shall thereby be entitled to three delegates, and one additional 
delegate from each Sabbath School connected with the church, who 
shall be a member of some Baptist Church. 

Objects 

Art. 3. The objects shall be to devise and recommend measures for 
increasing the harmony, the intelligence and the spiritual power of the 
churches, and for developing and directing their energies, their resources 
and their gifts, in advancing the Redeemer's kingdom in the earth. 
This association shall be an auxiliary to the Baptist State Convention 
in all educational, mission, Sabbath School, and other work fostered by 
its boards. 

Powers and Prerogatives 

Art. 4. The members thus convened shall sit as an advisory council, 
who shall have no power to infringe on any of the internal rights of 
the churches. It may advise the churches, and recommend measures 
of usefulness for their adoption, but cannot bind them in any way. 
Yet, in view of the combined wisdom, piety and intelligence of the 
body, it may justly claim for itself, for its objects, and for its recom- 
mendations the very highest consideration and regard. 

Art. 5. The Association shall have power to withdraw from any 
church that shall knowingly or wilfully depart from the orthodox prin- 
ciples of the religion as taught in the Bible and held by the regular 
Baptists as the true teachings thereof. 

Rights of Churches 

Art. 6. Baptists churches on application for admission to this body 
shall be received and their delegates seated, if necessary evidence is 
given that they are truly of our faith and order. 

Art. 7. It shall be the duty of the association when requested by 
aggrieved members to hear their grievances, give appropriate advice, 
or send committees to aid them in their difficulties. If the minority of 
the church is aggrieved with the majority, upon application they shall 
be entitled to the same consideration. Individual applications will not 
be entertained. 

Duties of Churches 

Art. 8. It shall be the duty of the churches to appoint as delegates, 
as far as practical, their most capable members, to insist upon their 
attendance, and to send by them a contribution to the Association 
Treasurer to pay for the printing of the minutes and other necessary 
expenses. 



8 Fifty-Eighth Annual Session 

Art. 9. It shall be the duty of each church to send annually a letter 
to the Association giving: I. Location; 2. Names of pastor, clerk, and 
other general officers and their respective post offices; 3. Sabbaths of 
regular worship; 4. Church statistics, with the number baptized, re- 
ceived by letter, restored, dismissed by letter, excluded, erased, or died 
during the past year; the total number in fellowship; 5. Statement of 
the finances of the church showing all amounts paid to local expenses 
and benevolent objects; 6. Sunday school statistics; 7. Records of other 
church organizations; 8. Names of delegates and alternates; 9. Any 
other information deemed of special importance or necessary for publi- 
cation, as required on the blanks in immediate use. 

Organization 

Art. 10. The officers of the Association shall be a Moderator, Vice- 
Moderator, Clerk, Treasurer, Auditor, Historian, who shall be elected 
by ballot at each annual session after the names of the delegates are 
enrolled, and shall continue in office until the next annual session. 

Duties of Officers 

Art. 11. It shall be the duty of the Moderator to open the meeting 
punctually at the time appointed, to enforce the rules, to preserve order, 
and to exercise all the prerogatives of a presiding officer according to 
the principles of established parliamentary usage. 

Art. 12. It shall be the duty of the vice-Moderator to discharge 
the duties of the Moderator in his absence. 

Art. 13. It shall be the duty of the Clerk to keep a faithful record 
of the proceedings of the Association; to superintend the printing and 
distribution of the same; and to keep on file the printed minutes and 
other important documents belonging to the body. The distribution 
shall be based on the comparative amount paid by each church to the 
minute fund. For his services the Clerk shall be paid Fifty ($50) 
dollars out of the Minute Fund. 

Art. 14. It shall be the duty of the Treasurer to receive and pay 
over to the proper parties all the money contributed direct to the 
Association by the churches, and make an annual report to the Associ- 
ation. 

Art. 15. It shall be the duty of the Auditor to annually examine the 
Treasurer's books and attest the report. 

Art. 16. It shall be the duty of the Historian to collect and put in 
some durable form all facts and interest about each of the churches of 
the Association and report at each session of this body. 

Amendments 

Art. IT. Amendments to the constitution may be made at any annual 
meeting, two-thirds of the members present concurring. 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 9

sition shall be received except to adjourn, to lay on the table, to 
amend, to commit, to postpone to a definite time, which several motions 
shall have preference in the order in which they come. 

10. The Association shall have the right to decide what subjects 
shall be admitted to consideration. 

11. The general business of the association shall be determined by 
a Committee on Order of Business named at the previous meeting, 
that will report as soon as feasible after the opening of the first meet- 
ing of the Association. When adopted their report shall become the 
order for the Association and cannot be changed except by vote of the 
Association as provided in Section 10 above.

MOUNT ZION BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



RELIGIOUS PERIODICALS 

For ninety-two years the Biblical Recorder has served as the organ of 
the Baptist people of North Carolina. When it was established its chief 
mission was to keep the churches informed as to the work of the denom- 
ination. The convention had been organized but three years, the churches 
belonging to the convention were scattered over the state, the means of 
communication were quite limited, and the brethren realized very 
keenly the need of having some means of communication between the 
churches. The most effective agency they could adopt was a paper to be 
published weekly and distributed as widely as possible among the 
churches by inducing the members to subscribe. 

Disseminating information is still an important mission of the 
Recorder, but there are other things of equal, if not greater, importance 
for which the paper exists. The country is flooded with literature, much 
of which is impure and demoralizing. This poison literature is finding 
its way into the homes of our people and is being read by the children 
in the homes it enters. It is very important to have going into our homes 
literature which will counteract the baleful influence of much of the 
literature to which our people have access. 

God has wonderfully used the Recorder for the coming of his 
Kingdom in North Carolina. The Recorder has been the organ and 
mouthpiece of the convention from the beginning. As our convention 
grows in numbers, it is imperative that the Recorder shall grow like- 
wise. Our people in some way must be infortned and enlightened about 
our denominational work. "We believe firmly that our failure to enlist 
many of our people is because they are not informed about our pro- 
gram. The readers of the Recorder are its best asset, and, in North 
Carolina, the Kingdom's best friends. 

If this denominational agency was needed when we numbered about 
fifteen thousand in this state, surely we need the paper far more now 
since we number about three hundred and seventy five thousand at the 
present time. We should endeavor to give it a more liberal support. 
We should also recommend Charity and Children, Home and Foreign 
Field, and the literature of our Sunday School Board, which are very 
worthy of attention, and will be found helpful to all our people.

HISTORIAN'S REPORT 
Olive Branch Baptist Church 

Olive Branch Ohurch joined the Mount Zion Association, coming to 
us from the Central Association, at its meeting with the church at 
Sandy Level on October 6, 1885. Its history for nine years previous to 
its admittance into the Mt. Zion Association, 1876, was, numerically, 
the most progressive year in all its existence. 

Its organization was anticipated and agitated previous to the organ- 
ization by Brethren Sol. J. Allen, Sandie Penny, George C. Stallings, 
R. H. D. Gooch and others. Rev. Addison Purefoy, a pastor of country 
churches residing at Wake Forest was consulted relative to the expedi- 



18 Fifty-Eighth Annual Session 

ency of such an enterprise; and he, after some investigation, advised 
and commended the organization. He solicited Brethren W. A. Smith, 
W. R. Obllum, and B'. W. Spilman, then ordained ministers and stu- 
dents at Wake Forest College to come and effect the organization. They 
constituted the presbytery, and the organization was affected in Dayton 
Academy, where the cemetery is now. Brother Purefoy then solicited 
Rev. Rufus Ford, a student at Wake Forest College to visit the field and 
hold a revival meeting with the church and community, which he did with 
marvelous and wonderful results. Many made profession of religion and 
joined the church. Brother Ford was called to the pastorate of the 
church, and remained pastor until 1878, when he graduated at Wake 
Forest Colelge and resigned and went to the Seminary at Louisville, Ky. 
Brother Ford very much endeared himself to the church and com- 
munity. His memory is held very sacred and dear by all the older 
members of the church. 

Dr. T. W. Young succeeded Brother Ford, and served the church 
until 1885. He was the oldest pastor that ever served the church. 

Rev. J. C. Hocutt succeeded Dr. Young, and was pastor until 1889, 
when he was called to the pastorate of several country churches around 
Chapel Hill, and moved his family to Chapel Hill. No pastor has ever 
served the church that did more to build up the church and community 
morally, religiously, and socially, than did Brother Hocutt. He was 
called to the church at a crisis when it was financially embarrassed. He 
faced the situation with very much determination and zeal, and threw 
his heart and soul and body into the undertaking, and relieved the 
church of its embarrassment. He taught school several years in Dayton 
Academy, the building in which the church and Sunday School services 
were held, and put in motion a wave of influence for good, that enternity 
alone will reveal. 

Rev. J. N. Booth, a student at Wake Forest College succeeded 
Brother Hocutt. He served only a few months and resigned, when 
another student at Wake Forest College, Rev. C. J. Thompson, was 
called and remained only a few months. J. F. McDuffie was called, but 
declined on account of his time being filled. 

Rev. C. B. Williams followed Brother Thompson — another Wake 
Forest student. He served only a few months and resigned. Rev. W. 
A. Smith, another student from Wake Forest College, was called. 
Brother Smith served about two years, from 1891 to 1893, and resigned. 
Rev. W. Y. Chappell was called, and served one year and resigned. 

Rev. O. C. Horton, who was then resident pastor at East Durham 
Church, was called, and served very efficiently for three years, from 
1896 to 1899. Brother Horton was in feeble health when he resigned, 
and died the next year, 1900. Brother Horton served the church very 
faithfully and efficiently. He was held in very high esteem by the 
Mt. Zion Association, having been elected for five consecutive years as 
moderator of the Association. He was moderator when he died. 

After Brother Horton's resignation Rev. J. W. Atkinson was called 
and served one year, when Rev. C. A. Sigmon accepted the church, and 
remained three years, when Rev. W. R. Beach was called and served 
during 1903-04-05. Brother Atkinson was again called and served one 
year, and Rev. J. E. Lanier accepted the work and resigned after a 
few months when Rev. W. L. Griggs accepted the church. 

Brother Griggs served the church from 1911 to 1914. He was very 
much loved, and did some excellent work in the church and community. 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 19 

The church was raised to a higher plane of consecration. The church 
regretted so much his leaving. 

Rev. R. K. Redwine was called to serve the church during 1915, 
and Rev. J. L. Martin served during the years 1916 and '17. Rev. J. L. 
Price served during the years 1918 and '19. Rev. C. H. Cashwell 
accepted the work and served during 1920. Rev. D. T. Hurley accepted 
the work for 1921 and 1922. 

Under Brother Hurley's administration the new house of worship 
was introduced and agitated. He served only a few months, when 
declining health caused him to resign. Rev. Paul Hartsell filled out the 
unexpired term of his ministry by recommendation of Brother Hurley. 

In conference meeting of the church in August, 1921, a suggestion 
was made by some Brother that the church needed a resident pastor 
instead of a student pastor. So the church at its conference meeting in 
1923 decided to call Rev. J. A. Brindell, resident pastor of Yates 
Baptist Church. Brother Brindell began serving the church January, 
1923, and served two years, when the present pastor, Rev. A. H. Porter, 
was called. The plans for the brick structure were advocated, and the 
building commenced under Brother Brindell's administration, and car- 
ried to its present condition under Brother Porter's administration. 

Olive Branch Church, as is true of many other churches, has had 
dark days, as well as its bright days. As often as it has yielded to the 
tempter, it has made mistakes; but when they have turned their backs 
to his temptations, and followed the leading of God's spirit they have 
made progress. It has had, and still has some of God's chosen ones 
within its ranks. No better men and women ever lived than some consti- 
tuting its membership. They are the salt of the earth. 

Some mistakes which it has made has caused the church not to 
measure up to the extent of its ability. Fifty percent of its pastors 
have been inexperienced brethren. These pastors have not been able 
to attend our Associational and conventional meetings. Hence the 
church has not had the proper regard and interest in the various 
recommendations of the boards of the convention. The church has done 
well considering its training and information. At several sessions of our 
associational meetings the church did not have a representative, and 
at several it was represented only by letter. Such meetings are helpful 
to the church and pastor in their relation to each other, as well as to 
the Association and cause in general. 

Now that the church has taken on new life, and erected such a beau- 
tiful and commodious brick building, and assumed a debt of $13,500.00, 
and owe only $6,000.00 of this amount in so short a time since they 
commenced their building, why may we not expect greater things of it 
in the future for Kingdom building? 

One other step needs to be taken by the church in the near future, 
so soon as they can release themselves from their present incumbrance, 
and that is the building of a parsonage somewhere near the church, and 
call a pastor for all of his time, and locate him in their midst, as a 
citizen. The church and community made its greatest progress when 
Brother J. C. Hocutt was a citizen of the community. This is only a 
faint revelation of the Promise of God. If we can trust His promise 
thus far, and see the results for the good of the church and community, 
why not throw ourselves flat on the promises of God, and make a test 
of His love and mercy, and leave behind us a record which will be an 
heritage for future generations? "We brought nothing into this world, 
and it is certain that we can carry nothing out" when we go. It will 



20 Fifty-Eighth Annual Session 

cost only two things to do this: a will to do, and a way to try. God 
says: "I will, if you'll try me"; Christ says: "I am the Way"; let Him 
show you. It will be a heritage to be proud of. Your children will rise 
up and call you blessed. 

We could not well close this report without mention of one good 
brother, who has gone through all the vicissitudes land trying ordeals 
and experiences of this work. He has stood faithful and true, and is 
now about to lay down his armor to take up his crown, the dearest 
place on earth to him, and the nearest place to Heaven to him is Olive 
Branch Church and community around it. He is now looking at the sun 
go down its last time in this life. He has recently received a warning — 
is now afflicted and decrepit, and is not expecting to stay but a short 
while with us. His family of children show his impress of character 
as useful, pious, and consecrated christian citizens. I refer to Brother 
George G Stallings, who now lingers in his eightieth year and is wait- 
ing for the call to go home. Others have been his co-workers, but he 
is the only remaining member of the church who came in as a charter 
member, and has shared in all the work of the church. 

Also, the young people of the church are to be congratulated for 
their perseverance and zeal. They have wrought nobly, and by their 
training in the Sunday School and B. Y. P. U. bid fair to become a 
great and good band of workers in the church. 

There is no reason why by continued effort, Olive Branch Church 
may not become one of the best, if not the best, community church in 
the Mt. Zion Association. 

REPORT ON SOCIAL SERVICE 

Including 

ORPHANAGE, MINISTERIAL RELIEF, AND HOSPITAL 

In the report on Social Service at the last Baptist State Convention 
Dr. Walt N, Johnson defines the subject in the following terse lan- 
guage: "Social Service is Christians working together and working 
with God in making this earth a clean footstool for God. Social Service 
is not the Gospel, it is the inevitable effect of it. Orphanages, hospi- 
tals, and public sanitation, and law enforcement are not Christianity; 
they are the leaves and its fruits. They must therefore be given plenty 
of room in the Christian program. Take them out of the work of 
Christ, and nothing is left but the bare tree. Our modern world is so 
completely and widely organized that the social side of Christian 
activity has to be carefully nurtured. Hospitals and orphanages and 
such institutions must be supported, if we are to give social expression 
to the service of Christ among men." 

The Orphanage 

The Orphanage, from its very nature, has a relation to Christian 
people more tender than that of any other institution. Indeed one does 
not have to be a Christian disciple of Christ to believe in and endorse 
this form of practical Christianity. Its appeal is human before it is 
Christian. 

Our Orphanage at Thomasville, with its Kennedy Home Branch, is 
an institution that all Baptists can look to with just pride. The phenom- 
enal growth of its ministry of mercy thru the years can only be ex- 
plained by the leading of God's hand. On Nov. 11, 1885, the first child 
was received. Since that time 2,519 children have been admitted. 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 21 

At present the orphanage numbers 596. 56 of this number are from 
Alamance, Durham, and Orange counties. In addition to this, 392 
children are being aided in their own homes. A consecrated group of 
56 women and 22 men devote all of their time to the Orphanage. This 
means that if the work is to be properly carried on more Baptists 
must foster its support. 

In recent years the Thanksgiving offering has had a large part in 
carrying on the work. But this institution cannot run on this annual 
contribution. It must live from day to day and month to month. Its 
only hope is the once a month offering from more Sunday Schools, 
indeed from every school. Experience teaches that this is the right plan. 

Dr. Kesler, the able General Manager asks that our Association 
along with every other association, appoint a representative who will 
keep alive this once a month offering in every Sunday School. 

Ministerial Relief 

The care of old preachers and widows of deceased ministers is a 
prime obligation not on a few churches but upon all churches. For a 
long time this was sadly neglected. Ten years ago the Southern Bap- 
tist Convention was led to take the responsibility in this matter, and now 
all the states with the single exception of Missouri, are administering 
aid through the Relief and Annuity Board, located at Dallas, Texas. 
In this brief time nearly a million dollars has been distributed. 

Funds come from two sources: gifts through the United program 
and invested funds. The invested fund is a little more than $500,000, 
and the gifts from the churches last year was a little less than $100,000. 

There are nearly 1,300 active members of the Annuity Fund. In 
this the members pay 20% and the denomination adds 80%. On the 
present basis members are to receive $500 per year at and after the age 
of 68. In case of death the family receives a proportionate part. More 
preachers should avail themselves of the protection of this Fund. 

A new pension plan is being promoted and hopes to operate by 1930. 
It offers more adequate protection, following the lead of Northern Bap- 
tists and many other denominations. 

So much for cold figures. While there is this business side to the 
work, certainly no one would look at it merely on that basis. The 
denomination cannot and would not forget the labors of those who have 
given their all for the work of Christ and the Baptist cause. 

During the present year, May 24, 1927, Ministerial Relief suffered 
a great loss in the death of Dr. Wm. Lunsford, Secretary of the Board 
since its beginning. May his example and loyalty inspire many others 
to a deeper love and wider interest in this cause so close to his heart. 

The Hospital 

While the Baptist Hospital is apparently new the ministry of heal- 
ing is as old as the New Testament and as worthy as the example of 
Christ. Its work has been received with favor and Baptists and all 
others have recalled afresh the earthly interest of Jesus toward the 
sick and suffering. 

The site in Winston-Salem, the plant, its equipment, and the manage- 
ment have attracted universal favor. Most of all the spirit of this 
institution and its practical charity has already caused a great host of 
people to become debtors to it. 

Over 500 charity patients and 500 pay patients come each year. 
Last year the State Convention asked for a $25,000 offering on Mother's 



22 Fifty-Eighth Annual Session 

Day. Every cent of the offering that comes on Mother's Day goes to 
charity work. Let us give our Baptist Hospital a larger place that 
the Great Physician through it may do a larger work. 

Respectfully submitted, 

E. C. Deast. 

REPORT ON STATE, HOME AND FOREIGN MISSIONS 

The principal reason for early Baptist cooperative organization was 
the furtherance of the mission cause. A deep passion for the extension 
of God's kingdom stirred the hearts of our spiritual forbears. The work 
begun by them has prospered, in the main, till the present time. And 
now, in the aggregate, an immense volume of mission work is being 
done. All the regular forms of mission activities are being carried on at 
home and abroad. 

But conditions have greatly changed in recent years. The easy-going 
optimism which saw in the 75 million campaign the beginning of per- 
manent adequate support for all our enterprises has been rudely 
destroyed. Receipts have progressively fallen off, showing that the vast 
majority of our people were really unreached by the spirit of the 
campaign. Many persons who gave to it have lost their enthusiasm for 
world evangelism; and many churches have already settled to their old 
ways of giving. 

The result has been a great decline in gifts for all objects and a 
consequent retrenchment in our work. The worthy programs of mission 
work at home and abroad have been shrivelled by lack of support from 
the churches. The high ideals of the campaign years can scarcely be 
recognized in the smaller programs of the present. Retrenchment and 
debt are paralyzing the work of our boards. Many missionaries have 
been called home. Drastic cuts in salaries and in funds for equipment 
cripple the rest. Thus, work that has been built up through many years 
is greatly, probably permanently, retarded. 

The Home Mission Board has been forced to cut down the number 
of workers in all departments, and this at a time of greatest need and 
glorious opportunity. In one department alone it has dropped 25 
missionaries. 

State Mission appropriations have steadily declined for four years, 
the amounts appropriated to our work for these three years being as 
follows: $146,000, $132,000, $92,000, and $77,000. Last year's expendi- 
tures were almost fifty per cent less than those of four years ago. 

Moreover, a debt of $60,000 handicaps our State Mission work. 
Last year we helped support 118 missionary pastors. This year we 
have only 87. And this number must be reduced next year unless our 
people give more .liberally. 

And yet, in spite of the great handicap under which our State Mis- 
sion work labors, marvellous success, through God's blessing, has at- 
tended our efforts. Our W. M. U. organizations deserve mention for 
their loyalty. Last year they gave over $265,000 to all objects. Our 
Sunday School Department is working heroically. A steady gain in 
Sunday School efficiently has been realized for many years. In this 
connection we note with profound sorrow the protracted and serious 
illness of Mr. E. L. Middleton, to whose efforts we owe much of this 
success. 

Our B. Y. P. U. work has grown rapidly, till now it is one of our 
most aggressive activities. The future leaders of our denominations are 
in training. Doubtless God will use them mightily. Our evangelistic 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 23 

force has been reduced to two. Rev. J. O. Canipe is one of these. His 
address is Roxboro. Rev. J. H. Moore works among colored people. 

Our Board is helping to maintain student workers at Wake Forest, 
Chapel Hill, State College, and Greensboro. It also makes possible the 
Preacher's School, which met this year at Meredith College, and was 
attended by over 250 preachers. Doubtless this is one of our most 
fruitful expenditures. 

Our task is mighty. The world need is great. Non-Christian religions 
are rousing themselves against further losses, some even contemplating 
the winning of America for themselves. To meet the present call in 
any adequate way our religion must be greatly vitalized. Earnest 
prayer must unite us to God and His cause. Our people must be more 
widely informed of God's world plan and of world needs. The call of 
the world must be heard. The spirit of our devoted missionaries must 
be duplicated in our people at home. Stewards of all God's gifts at 
home must match their devotion to that of our workers abroad. 

It is suggested that our pastor read more and preach oftener about 
missions and lead their people to pray. 

It is also suggested that our Superintendents magnify the special 
mission days in our Sunday Schools as opportunities for instruction 
and enlistment. 

And we urge that our people study missions. Our Mission Fields 
and Royal Service should be read by all. Books on missions may be 
had for small sums from the Baptist Book Shop, Raleigh. Also our 
Mission Boards will furnish free many pamphlets dealing with all 
phases of our work. 

Respectfully submitted, 

L. E. M. Freeman. 

REPORT OF W. M. U. WORK 

As we come to the end of the year and review the year's work, our 
thoughts of joy are intermingled with sadness. Joy that we have been 
able to accomplish so much for the Master, and sadness that the field 
before us was whitened unto harvest, but the laborers were so few. 

It has been a pleasure to work with our efficient Executive Board, 
and an inspiration to be associated with our enthusiastic Superintendent, 
as she has guided so patiently through the year. It has been her aim to 
improve each society and bring it as near to perfection as possible. 

We have organized fourteen new Societies: W. M. S. three; Y. W. A. 
two; G. A. six; R. A. two, and Sunbeams one. 

The financial quota for each society was increased ten per cent at 
the beginning of the year and we feel confident that we will reach our 
aim. 

We have given more liberally than usual to the Co-operative pro- 
gram, besides contributing to the Baptist Hospital, Associational and 
State Expense Fund, and W. M. U. Specials. We have finished paying 
our Associational pledge for the Nurses home at Winston-Salem. Not 
having an application for the Training School from our own Associa- 
tion, we sent $112.50 (one-half year's scholarship) to Raleigh to be used 
as a state scholarship. We understand a girl from Apex is using it. 

Our personal service work this year has been especially gratifying. 
Innumerable individuals have been blessed and comforted by the per- 
sonal touch of some one doing personal service. The reports from the 
rural churches deserve particular mention and praise along this line. 



24 Fifty-Eighth Annual Session 

Our Mission Study work, under the efficient leadership of our 
Chairman, Mrs. J. M. Whitted, has progressed by leaps and bounds, 
especially among the young people. Our aim for next year is a mission 
study class in each Society in our Association. 

We feel that the greatest thing we accomplished along the line of 
young people's work was the Associational Camp held at Camp Hollow 
Rock the last week in July. Our beloved State Leader, Miss Dorothy 
Kellam, and Miss Oora Lee Cannon were there through the week to 
instruct and inspire our young girls. There were three classes daily in 
Bible and Mission Study. The afternoons were spent in games and 
fun, and at night we gathered around the camp fire and sang hymns 
and listened to stories told by Miss Kellam of sacrifice and bravery ihat 
inspired us to make our lives more worthy of the One who sacrificed 
His own life for us. It was indeed a wonderful experience. We hope 
and pray that next year the first week in July will find a girl from 
each society in our Association at camp. We beg the cooperation of 
the pastors and parents in accomplishing our purpose. 

Next year it will be our pleasure to cooperate with the plans for 
the Centennial Campaign. In celebrating our Ruby Anniversary in 
1928, we are working toward a three-fold purpose: 

FIRST: Every woman, girl, or child enlisted in a missionary society. 

SECOND: That each society be a standard A-l organization, and 

THIRD: We desire at least two societies in each church in our 
Association — a W. M. S. and one of the young peoples' societies. 

To accomplish this we beg the help of the pastors of those churches 
without any missionary organization. We ask the prayers of all the 
Christian people on our work for the coming year. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. D. E. Ward. 

REPORT ON SUNDAY SCHOOLS 

We rejoice that the Baptist Sunday Schools in North Carolina have 
shown such marvelous growth during the past year. The membership 
has been greatly increased; many new buildings and new equipment 
have been added. Also, Teacher's Training Classes have greatly in- 
creased. There are 2,243 Sunday Schools in North Carolina and 2,325 
Churches. This means that there are 96.5 as many Sunday Schools as 
there are Churches. Our Sunday School membership is 323,777 with a 
Church membership of 375,767, giving us 86.1 Sunday School membership 
to every 100 Church members. We rejoice at this showing but there 
are still 90 churches with no Sunday School. 

According to our last report there are 114 standard Sunday Schools. 
This number ought to be increased this year. The standard of excel- 
lence has served as a great incentive in making this increase. May I 
call your attention to them briefly? 

Teaching 

Teaching the Bible is the heart of the Sunday School and no school 
will attain worthy achievements until this kind of teaching is done. 

Enlargement 

Our Sunday Schools are growing. We have made a net gain of 
102,000 in six years, but that is not enough. We have an unreached 
constituency of at least 525,000. 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 25 

Organization 

This means to grade your school. If this is done it will greatly 
increase the number of your classes. This work ought not to be done 
until you have taken a religious census. Then build your organization 
on the basis of your possibilities. 

Building and Equipment 

Many new buildings have been erected and many of the old ones 
improved during the year in order to take care of the Sunday School. 
This gives the Sunday School room to grow and makes the growth of 
the Sunday School possible. 

Training 

This need is being met by many of the Sunday Schools by having 
a Teacher's Training Class, at the same hour that the Sunday School 
meets. The Sunday Sch?ol Board stands ready to cooperate with any 
Church that is interested in putting on a training class. The success of 
this is demonstrated by the fact that 11,404 known diplomas were given 
last year. 

Enlistment 

Reaching the unreached of our Sunday School is done largely 
through our young people and adult classes. Have a definite program 
each Sunday. Begin on time and close on time. Give the teacher at 
least thirty minutes for the lesson. 

Evangelism 

Everything said above looks toward our supreme task. When we 
realize there are in this State over 6,000 lost men and women and 
£,000 children above the age of twelve years to be won for Christ, 
we realize some of our responsibility. The records of our Sunday 
Schools show that 93 per cent of our Church Membership come 
through the Sunday School. How important it is then that we get 
them interested in Sunday School work. After all the ultimate end 
of the Sunday School, from the Cradle Roll through each department 
is to win the lost for Ohrist and help them serve Him until He calls 
them home. Someone has well said "The race moves forward on the 
feet of little children." North Carolina Baptists are moving on. Let's 
give God our very best through the Sunday Schools of Mount Zion 
Association. 

Respectfully submitted, 

W. E. Stanley. 

REPORT ON B. Y. P. U. 

North Carolina Baptists have preached the gospel with fervor and 
power in the years agone. The Master has graciously bestowed His 
blessings upon our efforts to win the lost. He has given us thousands 
of young people in our churches. With the coming of every new life 
into the membership of a church comes a new and added responsibility 
to that church to nurse, nurture, guard and train it and so far as 
possible make it useful in Kingdom work. Every new born soul in God's 
kingdom is just a babe in Christ that does not always know how to 
walk, talk and work. He must be taught how to walk the new path he 
has chosen in Christ Jesus, how to give testimony to the goodness of 



26 Fifty-Eighth Annual Session 

God, and how and when and where to work for the Master. These 
babes in Christ demand and deserve the tenderest affections and gen- 
tlest considerations of the church as they start their work of growth 
and grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. 

The church, then, needs to exercise the closest and tenderest watch- 
care over them. In the realms of service where the church functions 
there should be a sector where these tender and beautiful plants in 
the garden of the church may grow to fruition. A denomination with- 
out a training department is like a garden planted but not cultivated, 
an army enlisted but without an academy, or a fort to train soldiers. 

The Baptist Young People's Union is the greatest training agency 
of the young people in our denomination. Its object is to increase the 
spirituality of the young christians, to train them in all essential 
church activities; their edification in Scriptural knowledge; to instruct 
them in Baptist doctrine and history; to enlist them in all forms of 
missionary endeavor; to help young christians find themselves in king- 
dom service; to cultivate the missionary spirit; to train them in 
church fellowship and in social and recreational life. This is a great 
aim and a challenging task. We shall save our churches for tomorrow 
by saving our young people of today. "Wisdom has fled from us" if 
we continue to neglect longer this task of training in every church 
in our state. 

To accomplish the aforesaid task our Sunday School Board at 
Nashville and the General Board of our Baptist State Convention 
foster this work of training. In the state we have two State-wide sec- 
retaries in the field, these being Perry Morgan, Jjreneral Secretary, 
and Miss Winnie Rickett, Secretary of Junior and Intermediate work. 
We also have a field worker, Miss Marguerite Harrison, in the eastern 
half of the state, and another, Miss Mary Frances Biggers, in the 
western half of the state. There are also nine associational workers 
maintained by the Baptist Sunday School Board at Nashville and the 
associations employing them. These workers conduct training schools 
and institutes, hold associational and district rallies, conferences and 
conventions. Their services are obtainable for work in city, town and 
country churches. 

In this association there are 81 unions in 34 churches. This is 
splendid, but we must remember at the same time that there are 18 
churches in our association which have no unions and are without this 
valuable training service. We recommend and urgently request the 
pastors and leaaders in churches without B. Y. P. U.'s to make an 
effort to organize same at the earliest possible time. 

We recommend that the churches elect the officers of unions, 
publicly installing and recognizing them as church officers, and call 
upon them regularly for reports and make these officers responsible 
to the church. We further recommend that each individual church 
support this work financially, prayerfully and sympathetically. 

The program of the B. Y. P. U. Department is the program of the 
Baptist State Convention. It is one of enlargement, enlightenment and 
enlistment. The aim of this organization is to train and keep our 
young people in sympathetic touch with and in line with every move- 
ment fostered by our denomination. 

The B. Y. P. U. is educational. It has a curriculum of twenty 
books in addition to the Bible and the topics in the B. Y. P. U. quar- 
terly. These books deal with such subjects as New Testament steward- 
ship, training in church membership, methods of Sunday School and 
church organization, Bible study, Baptist history, doctrines and 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 27 

Christian service. The work is truly educational and is bearing rich 
fruitage from year to year in preparing our young people for active, 
intelligent and capable participation in the work of the churches and 
the full program of our great denomination. 

Respectfully submitted, 

C. S. Norville.

REPORT ON BAPTIST SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES AND 
CENTENNIAL CAMPAIGN 

In the good year 1927 argument or apology in North Carolina for 
Education is useless because all thinking men appreciate its value. The 
danger, however, is that its value will come to be measured in terms 
of dollars. The State Schools can well afford so to measure it as well as 
in terms of service to the State, but our Christian Schools must not 
so measure it. Indeed, they do not. By as much as Christian Citizen- 
ship is of more intrinsic worth than merely good citizenship, by so 
much is Christian education superior to any system of education which 
leaves out Christ. This is not said to disparage the splendid moral 
training which one is happy to believe our State School provide. The 
fact remains, however, that our Christian Schools are positively Chris- 
tian, in attitude and purpose, for their faculties are Christian. The 
State Schools must insist on high moral standards; but be it remem- 
bered that the moral standards of today may degenerate tomorrow, and 
doubtless would but for the Christian code of ethics which is ever 
lifting existing moral standards to higher levels. Herein lies the func- 
tion of Christian Education, and herein is indicated its ever increasing 
task. Shall our State in all its activities be dominated by Christian 
Standards of conduct? It is for our churches and Christian Schools to 
say. In a word, the value of Education depends upon the attitude of 
mind and heart which is developed simultaneously with the acquiring 
of useful knowledge; and to the task of developing Christian attitudes 
our Baptist Schools have set themselves. "What will an education do 
for me" is of secondary importance. But "what will a trained mind 
and heart help me to do for others" is of supreme importance. — Here 
lies the emphasis of Christian Education; and surely, there is tremen- 
dous need for such emphasis at this time of confusion and change. Never 
have Christians and especially Baptists had a more challenging oppor- 
tunity. 

What then is our opportunity? Men and women of thought and 
action everywhere are asking, "To Whom shall we go?" Cultured and 
consecrated leadership is the need of the hour. Years ago our Biaptist 
Schools trained a large per cent of those graduating from any High 
School. Now we have only one High School left. On the other hand, 



28 Fifty-Eighth Annual Session 

we have students in college in larger numbers. These must be trained 
for Christian leadership in church and state. Here is our opportunity. 
We cannot train the many but we must give those whom we do train 
the very best. Given the proper Christian training and attitude, ponder 
well the service which the yearly 2,000 college students now in our 
schools will render in future years. The cost of providing such training 
now is a mere nothing when compared with the probable service these 
2,000 will render to the on-going of the Kingdom. 

Another contribution which our schools are making is worthy of our 
keen interest. Wake Forest, Mars Hill, Wingate and Campbell have 
summer school. Last summer at Wake Forest some 400 public school 
teachers had their first opportunity to study the Bible under competent 
teachers. Since most of our boys and girls must be trained in the public 
schools, it must be of deep concern to us that the conduct and attitude 
of these teachers shall be not only morally good but positively Chris- 
tian. And such an attitude our Baptist Summer Schools are meant to 
impart. 

This final word: Our schools must grow or go. Several have gone 
already. Worthwhile things cost money. We must put not only our 
boys and girls into our schools but our money as well. Through the 
Cooperative Program we must provide for operating them until such 
time as we can accumulate sufficient endowment. Then, we must within 
the next three years raise a great Centennial Fund, so that they may 
be released from burdensome debt ,and have a chance to GROW. If 
we are to be worthy of our God and those Baptist Builders who, in 
faith, began these enterprises, we must not, we cannot, having set our 
hands to the plow, look backward. We have the ideals: we have eager 
minds hungering for the full truth and hearts aglow for service; we 
have the money. Let us give our ideals a chance to direct our money 
so that these eager minds and glowing hearts may be prepared for 
spiritual service. And the Kingdom will surely come. To some, the big 
question seems to be: "How can we support our schools?" — in truth, 
the real question is: "How can we afford not to support them?" 
Respectfully submitted, 

Basil M. Watkins. 



PROCEEDINGS 

Woman's Missionary Union 



The annual meeting of the W. M. U. of the Mt. Zion 
Association was held at Mt. Giiead church August 30th. Mrs. 
J. M. Cheek, the superintendent, presided. 

Miss Lula Brown conducted the devotional and Mr. Gordon 
led in prayer. Mrs. C. E. Hackney gave a most cordial welcome 
to the union which was very graciously responded to by Mrs. 
S. L. Ray. 

Eighteen societies responded to the roll call. The officers' 
reports were especially encouraging this year. Several new 
societies were reported. The Misison Study leader reported — 
number of churches reporting nine, number of mission study 
classes eighty-two, number of seals four hundred and nine, 
certificates sixty-two, number of reading seals sixty-five. 

The superintendent gave an inspiring report as well as an 
instructive talk about our future work. 

Miss Olypie Fletds brought a message from her home coun- 
try- — Central America. She gave the society a vivid picture 
of her country, and told of the great need for Christian workers. 

A motion was made and carried that the nominating com- 
mittee be elected early in the morning. After the appointment 
of committees, and a prayer by Mrs. C. C. Coleman, the meet- 
ing adjourned for lunch.

Healing the Blind Man." Mrs. Clyde Johnson conducted a 
short but impressive memorial service for the five loved ones who 
had been called from this to their Heavenly home. 

The Training School scholarship fund was discussed to 
decide where to use the money. Mrs. C. C. Coleman and Mrs. 
J. L. Gates were appointed to confer with T. S. committee in 
regard to use of funds.

CONSTITUTION 



Article 1. This body shall be known as the Mount Zion Baptist 
Association of North Carolina. 

Membership 

Art. 2. It shall be composed of the ordained ministers, belonging 
to, and members chosen annually by, the several churches belonging 
to this body, who, by presenting letters from their respective churches, 
certify their appointment, and shall thereby be entitled to seats. Each 
church shall thereby be entitled to three delegates, and one additional 
delegate from each Sabbath School connected with the church, who 
shall be a member of some Baptist Church. 

Objects 

Art. 3. The objects shall be to devise and recommend measures for 
increasing the harmony, the intelligence and the spiritual power of the 
churches, and for developing and directing their energies, their resources 
and their gifts, in advancing the Redeemer's kingdom in the earth. 
This association shall be "an auxiliary to the Baptist State Convention 
in all educational, mission, Sabbath School, and other work fostered by 
its boards. 

Powers and Prerogatives 

Art. 4. The members thus convened shall sit as an advisory council, 
who shall have no power to infringe on any of the internal rights of 
the churches. It may advise the churches, and recommend measures 
of usefulness for their adoption, but cannot bind them in any way. 
Yet, in view of the combined wisdom, piety and intelligence of the 
body, it may justly claim for itself, for its objects, and for its recom- 
mendations the very highest consideration and regard. 

Art. 5. The Association shall have power to withdraw from any 
church that shall knowingly or wi' fully depart from the orthodox prin- 
ciples of the religion as taught in the Bible and held by the regular 
Baptists as the true teachings thereof. 

Rights of Churches . 

Art. 6. Baptist churches on application for admission to this body 
shall be received and their delegate seated, if necessary evidence is 
given that they are truly of our faith and order. 

Art. 7. It shall be the duty of the association when requested by 
aggrieved members to hear their grievances, give appropriate advice, 
or send committees to aid them in their difficulties. If the minority of 
the church is aggrieved with the majority, upon application they shall 
be entitled to the same consideraton. Individual applications will not 
be entertained. 

Duties of Churches 

Art. 8. It shall be the duty of the churches to appoint as delegates, 
as far as practical, their most capable members, to insist upon their 
attendance, and to send by them a contribution to the Association 
Treasurer to pay for the printing of the minutes and other necessary 
expenses. 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 9 

Art. 9. It shall be the duty of each church to send annually a letter 
to the Association giving: 1. Location; 2. Names of pastor, clerk, and 
other general officers and their respective post offices; 3. Sabbaths of 
regular worship; 4. Church statistics, with the number baptized, re- 
ceived by letter, restored, dismissed by letter, excluded, erased, or died 
during the past year; the total number in fellowship; 5. Statement of 
the finances of the church showing all amounts paid to local expenses 
and benevolent objects; 6. Sunday school statistics; 7. Records of other 
church organizations; 8. Names of delegates and alternates; 9. Any 
other information deemed of special importance or necessary for publi- 
cation, as required on the blanks in immediate use. 

Organization 

Art. 10. The officers of the Association shall be a Moderator, Vice- 
Moderator, Clerk, Treasurer, Auditor, Historian, who shall be elected 
by ballot at each annual session after the names of the delegates are 
enrolled, and shall continue in office until the next annual session. 

Duties of Officers 

Art. 11. It shall be the duty of the Moderator to open the meeting 
puctually at the time appointed, to enforce the rules, to preserve order, 
and to exercise all the prerogatives of a presiding officer according to 
the principles of established parliamentary usage. 

Art. 12. It shall be the duty of the vice-Moderator to discharge 
the duties of the Moderator in his absence. 

Art. 13. It shall be the duty of the Clerk to keep a faithful record 
of the proceedings of the Association; to superintend the printing and 
distribution of the same; and to keep on file the printed minutes and 
other important documents belonging to the body. The distribution 
shall be based on the comparative amount paid by each church to the

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON MATTHEW T. YATES 
MEMORIAL 

Your special committee, appointed two years ago to provide a suita- 
ble memorial to Matthew Tyson Yates on the grounds of the Mount Pis- 
gah Baptist Church, beg leave to report that the memorial has been 
erected in the form of a granite boulder, about 5x3Vgxl% feet in size, on 
the face of which, is a bronze tablet containing the following informa- 
tion: 

"Erected by The Mount Zion Baptist Association in memory of 
Matthew Tyson Yates, 1819-1888, who in early life made this spot his 
place of prayer and here dedicated his life to the cause of foreign mis- 
sions; in 1847 he went as a pioneer missionary of the Southern Baptist 
Convention to China where he labored arduously and with great success 
until his death in 1888." 

The committee thought it necessary, on account of the sloping nature 
of the ground on which the memorial is erected, to build a rock wall 
around the plot to keep it from washing and to make possible the plant- 
ing and growing of grass. The memorial is about 85 yards from the 
church building and faces the public road, about twenty feet distant. 

The following items of expense have been incurred in the erection of 
the memorial, and your committee awaits instruction from the Associa- 
tion as to the method to use in securing the necessary funds to defray 
this expense: 

To Warner Bros, Raleigh, N. C, for the boulder, 

bronze tablet and the erection of the memorial $300.00 

To Eugene Olive, Chapel Hill, N. C, for the expense of 

erecting rock wall, telephone messages, photographs.— 19.74 



Total $319.74 

Your committee recommends as a practical method of raising this 
money that each church in the Association be requested to contribute 
an amount of not less than one per cent of its total contributions to 
missions and benevolences during the year 1927. In case the amount so 
secured is more than enough to defray this expense, we recommend that 
the treasurer of the Association be instructed to send the balance to the 
treasurer of the Baptist State Convention to be used for Foreign 
Missions. 

Signed: 

J. F. McDuffie, 
G. T. Mills, 
Eugene Olive.

WHEREAS, there is serious consideration by some of the Auxiliary 
organizations of our Association, notably the Woman's Mission Union, 
to publish the Minutes of their annual meeting in separate form, be- 
cause our Association has not felt justified, due to the additional expense 
involved, in granting them sufficient space in our Associational Minutes; 
and 

WHEREAS, it seems to many that such a course would be divisive 
to our forces instead of more closely relating and unifying our Asso- 
ciational agencies; and 

WHEREAS, the annual meetings of these Associational organiza- 
tions will be held before the next regular meeting of our Association, 
and because it seems desirable that some action in the matter be taken 
for their information and future guidance, therefore, be it 

RESOLVED: That a Committee consisting of the Moderator, Vice- 
Moderator, Associational Clerk, the Executives of our Associational 
Auxiliaries, namely the Superintendent of the Woman's Mission Union, 
President of the Sunday School Association and the President of the

MOUNT ZION BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



REPORT ON PERIODICALS 

The Biblical Recorder was first published by Thomas Meredith 
ninety-four years ago. It contains the best thoughts of the best thinkers 
among our people. It is printed in the interest of our Baptist work and 
at the expense of the stockholders of the Biblical Recorder Co. For the 
past seven years the paper has been a liability. It seeks to bring in the 
reign of Christ. 

The readers of the Recorder are its best asset and in North Carolina 
the Kingdom's best friends. The best is none too good for our North 
Carolina Baptist homes. The future homes depend on the Christian 
culture of the homes of this generation. People are largely influenced 
by what they read. 

The Recorder seeks to give a Christian and Baptist interpretation 
to the events of the day. It seeks to give the achievements among our 
schools, our churches, our Sunday schools, B. Y. P. U. and laymen's 
work. It presents letters from our missionaries at home and abroad and 
so informs the readers of what is being accomplished through their 
contributions. The price is $2.00 per year. The circulation ought to be 
increased to 25,000 as a minimum. 

Our Sunday schools should take the Charity and Children in clubs. 
The Home and Foreign Fields should, with The Recorder, be in every 
Baptist home. Our people should read all other Baptist periodicals. 

C. H. Norris. 

HISTORIAN'S REPORT 

Burlington Church 

The Burlington Baptist Church antedates back to the days when 
Burlington was known as "Company Shops." In all the history of 
churches of the Baptist faith, in the past, the spirit of fellowship and 
unity has prevailed; and they have contended for the practice and faith 
once delivered to the saints. There was a restless spirit, and a longing 
and yearning desire in the minds and hearts of the thirteen Baptists 
then in this little village for this feeling of love and fellowship, according 
to the teaching of the New Testament. Hence the organization of this 
church. 

On the 28th day of July, 1887, after a series of meetings, conducted 
by Reverend G. S. Daugherty in a Union Chapel on the corner of 
Union and Fisher Streets, several Baptist brethren from other Baptist 
churches met and organized the First Baptist Church of Burlington, 
N. C. Dr. C. Durham, pastor of Durham Church, was elected Chairman. 
Brother Daugherty was elected clerk of this meeting. Nine members 
from Graham church, and four from other Baptist churches presented 
letters, and these thirteen constituted the first Baptist Church of 
Burlington. Brother J. W. Cates and T. M. Roberson were elected as 
deacons, and Brother R. E. Andrews was chosen as clerk. Reverend 
A. T. Hord was called as pastor. Thus the beginning and foundation 
of Burlington's first Baptist Church was laid. 

In the spring of 1888 a lot was bought for $25.00 from the Southern 
Railroad Company on the corner of Davis and Mendenhall Streets, on 
which to build a house of worship. This is the lot on which the present 



20 Fifty-Ninth Annual Session 

building now stands. Pastor Hord undertook the raising of $1,000.00 
for a church building. The first candidate was baptized in November 
in a pond near the Coffin Shop. The corner stone of the first building 
was laid in 1889, and the building was completed in 1891. Previous to 
this, services were held in the Union Chapel. 

Dr. Thomas Hume of Chapel Hill was called to the pastorate of the 
church in the fall of 1889, but ill health caused him to resign, after 
serving only a short time. Dr. J. B. Richardson of High Point was then 
called for half time, but could only accept for one Sunday in the month. 
He resigned in 1893, and Reverend J. C. Hocutt was called. 

Brother Hocutt began serving the church in January 1893. His 
pastorate marks an era of prosperity in the history of the church. There 
were many additions to the membership, finances improved, church 
envelopes were adopted; Glencoe became a mission point under the 
auspices of the church; and many were baptized into the fellowship of 
the church of Burlington. In September 1894 Brother Hocutt was called 
at a salary of $350.00 for three Sundays in the month. The church 
entertained the meeting of the Mount Zion Association this year. In 
November of this year letters were granted thirty-seven members to 
form the Glencoe Church. In December Brother Hocutt's successful 
pastorate came to end. The church gave him a hearty vote of thanks for 
his labors of love, and faithful performance of duty. 

Brother Hocutt was succeeded by Reverend R. Van Deventer from 
Henderson, N. C. He began serving the church in January 1895 at a 
salary of $1000.00 for full time, a part of which was paid by the Mission 
Board. His pastorate was marked by large growth and general expan- 
sion. In April of this year the pastor held a revival continuing nearly 
three weeks which resulted in the addition of nearly twenty souls 
including some who are now the most valuable members of the church. 
An addition which doubled the capacity of the church was built on the 
South side of the house. The B. Y. P. U. was organized, and became an 
important factor and Vital feature of the church life. In the fall of 
1895 Brother Van Deventer was called again at a salary of $1,000.00 a 
year, and the custom of annual calls was abolished and the call was 
made indefinite. 

March 1, 1897, Reverend J. S. Corpening was called at a salary of 
$700. This call was notable for the beginning of a Sunday School in 
West Burlington, and a revival conducted by Reverend Thomas Need- 
ham, and finally resulted in the organization and building of a Second 
Baptist Church in Burlington, now called "Hocutt Memorial." Brother 
Corpening's pastorate ended in December 1898. The church then re- 
mained without a pastor from January to September 1899. Reverend 
H. H. Marshburn served as supply during the summer months. 

Reverend G. H. Church accepted the work, and served the church 
as pastor. He accepted the work in September 1899 at a salary of $700 
of which the Board paid $100.00. Under Brother Church's ministry the 
church advanced in its contributions from $100 to $125. The church in- 
vited the Baptist State Convention to meet with them in 1900, but it 
declined the invitation. A move was made to do mission work in West 
Burlington. A lot was secured, and they held services in a store building, 
and a few converts were baptized. A heating plant was installed in the 
church at a cost of $300. Brother Church's pastorate ended in 1901. 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 21 

In 1902, by recommendation of Brother L. Johnson, Reverend N. S. 
Jones of Montvella, Alabama, was called at a salary of $700. He began 
his pastorate in April and served the church until December 1903. 

The church then called Reverend A. W. Setzer of Morehead City. 
He began his work in 1904 in February. Under his ministry the church 
was painted, repaired, and Sunday School rooms were fitted up in the 
basement of the church building. Electric lights were installed, indi- 
vidual communion service purchased. Steps were taken to build a Mis- 
sion Chapel between Carolina and Big Falls factories on Haw River, 
the first payment on an apportionment of $133.00 for the Mount Zion 
orphanage building at Thomasville, N. C. Benevolent contributions ad- 
vanced to more than $200. Steps were taken towards building a parson- 
age. Brother Setzer's pastorate ended the last of January 1906. 

Reverend C. A. Upchurch accepted the church in May 1906. A large 
number were baptized under his pastorate, and the foundation was laid 
for a great improvement in church finances by the adoption of the 
"Duplex Envelope System" for current expenses of the church. In April 
1907 the Pastor's salary was advanced to $900.00. Mission work at 
West Burlington was resumed, and Brother J. A. Hackney was secured 
as Missionary at a salary of $100.00, and a site was secured for a 
mission chapel. Brother Upchurch resigned at the end of 1908. 

Reverend S. L. Morgan, of Red Springs and Maxton Fields, accepted 
a call from the church and began his pastorate with the church on the 
first of June 1909 at a salary of $1000.00. Brother Morgan's pastorate 
began under conditions that were very favorable. The membership had 
reached 300, including many who were faithful workers. The church had 
already voted in favor of building a parsonage promptly. The Sunday 
School was large and growing, and more room was needed. To meet 
the demand a large wing at the rear of the church was built at a cost of 
$2,300.00, providing for eight Sunday School rooms, and having an annex 
to connect with the auditorium. A lot was bought for $1250, and parson- 
age was erected at a cost of $3,500, making a total expenditure of about 
$7,000.00. Brother Morgan's pastorate was the longest in the history 
of the church, covering a period of three years and six months. During 
this period there were added to the membership of the church 211. 
This was the 25th year of the church's history. Three of the former 
pastors, Dr. Hume, Dr. Richardson, and Brother Hocutt, were called 
to their eternal home during this year. 

At this juncture of the church's needs, they deserved a giant — 
mentally, morally, spiritually, and physically. Their former pastor, 
Brother Morgan, a brother with a keen vision, a broad mind, and a 
shepherd's heart, took into consideration the whole situation, and the 
urgent needs of the church, and recommended for the consideration of 
the church, a brother beyond the Mason and Dixon line, away up in the 
great city of Chicago. When he came, the church found he possessed all 
these requisite qualities except one — namely, he was physically of small 
stature. But, notwithstanding, this being the least requisite in the 
estimation of the church, he was called. The doors of the church were 
opened, and Reverend Martin W. Buck stepped in and accepted the 
pastorate of the church. 

Brother Buck accepted the work at a very opportune time. After an 
adequate and safe foundation had been laid for the church, by the 
brethren who had preceded him, the way was open for him to make 
the greatest display of his ability. He has filled up the measure to their 



22 Fifty-Ninth Annual Session 

joy and satisfaction. He has endeared himself, not only to the people 
of Burlington, and his church; but his influence has gone out into the 
state, and especially to the Mount Zion Association. No brother in the 
ranks of the ministry of our Association is more highly esteemed and 
appreciated and honored than is Brother Buck. Safe and sane in his 
judgment, prudent and wise in his advice, jovial and sunshiny in his 
disposition, he has made Burlington Baptist Church a great and good 
pastor. 

He came to the pastorate of Burlington Church in January 1913, 
and entered into the work heartily, with his whole soul and body. As a 
result of his arduous and continuous efforts, the church has grown in 
membership during these passing years, from 381 to nearly 1000. Finan- 
cial contributions have increased from $3,800.00 to nearly $20,000.00. 
A large commodious church building has been finished at a cost of 
$102,500.00 on a corner lot on Broad and Davis Streets. The parsonage 
has been sold, and a new parsonage has been built in a more convenient 
location on Davis Street, near the church lot. 

There have been several very helpful and fruitful revival meetings 
held during Brother Buck's ministry. In the spring of his first year's 
pastorate four splendid young men from the Baptist Theological Semi- 
nary of Rochester, N. Y., was held, which stirred the community, greatly 
revived the church, and added large numbers to its membership. But 
just as the meeting reached its high water mark, the pastor was sudden- 
ly stricken with complete nervous prostration, and lingered at death's 
door for several days. As a result, the meeting came to an unexpected 
ending. To show their appreciation of their pastor, the church and com- 
munity provided every necessary and available means in reach for his 
recovery, by praying and consoling his family with most Christ-like 
words and deeds. Such love and consideration placed the sick man 
under an indebtedness which can never be repaid, and which has made 
it a joy to serve ever since. Another great revival was held by the 
"W. F. Ham and Ramsey" party, which lasted about seven weeks. The 
result of this meeting was an addition of 230 to the membership of the 
church. 

Prominent among the faithful ones, who have spent and the .sacrifice 
they have made for the building of Burlington Baptist Church, we 
presume it would not be amiss to mention the names of Brother J. W. 
Cates and wife, whose minds and hearts and talents and means were 
thoroughly enlisted in the work, when the church was making its hardest 
struggle for existence, and Brother John H. Vernon, a young lawyer, 
fast rising to prominence and influence. While he regarded his profes- 
sion as a lawyer, he never failed to, nor did he neglect his profession as 
a Christian gentleman. He was ever loyal to his church, and held the 
confidence and esteem of his church and community. Another bright star 
has set in the going of Mrs. Buck, wife and companion of Pastor Buck. 
Her going was seemingly a great loss to the church and community, as 
well as the others above mentioned who have gone. She was very promi- 
nent in the women's work of the church, and not only in her church, but 
in the Mount Zion Association, and the State. There are others whom we 
have not mentioned who have wrought well, and passed to their reward, 
who have left behind them monuments of love and sacrifice, by which 
the world has been made better. To the God of love and grace be 
thanks and praise for their lives; and may we press onward to the final 
day when we shall all meet in that triumphant church in Heaven, where 
parting shall be no more, and we shall ever be with the Lord.

MISSIONS AND STEWARDSHIP 

The Gospel of Mark quotes Jesus as saying, "Let us go elsewhere 
into the next towns that I may preach there also." Luke quotes Him 
thus, "I must preach the good tidings of the Kingdom of God to the 
other cities also: for therefore was I sent." In the Gospel of John He 
says, "Other sheep I have which are not of this fold: them also I must 
bring, and they shall hear my voice; and they shall become one flock, 
one shepherd." He said to His disciples, "Ye did not choose Me, but I 
chose you, and appointed you, that you should go and bear fruit. . . . 
As the Father hath sent Me, even so send I you. ... Go ye, therefore, 
and make disciples of all the nations." 

Missions is the universal realization of God's purpose in Christ to 
redeem all the nations by means of human messengers. It is not only the 
adequate preaching of the good tidings of the kingdom so men may 
know what and how to believe, but also the adequate teaching of the 
life and work of the kingdom. Salvation is more than freedom from the 
dominion of sin. It is a life to be lived. It is a long process. Conse- 
quently, State, Home and Foreign missions include preaching the Gospel 
of the kingdom, teaching the principles governing the kingdom, training 
for service in the kingdom, healing and ministering to the needy by 
those who are of the kingdom. 

In the nature of the case, mission work cannot be completed until 
the reign of the kingdom becomes universal. The forces of the kingdom 
are moving in that direction, but the end is nowhere in sight. The fast 
multiplying population of earth, the increasing business activities of 
men, and the rapid shifting of population around new business enter- 
prises are constantly increasing the field of mission obligation. The 
kingdom is like the leaven which a woman mixed into three measures of 
meal that all of it might be leavened. The Gospel is the leaven of the 
world and must be mixed into the whole lump of unleavened humanity. 

Missions is helping the Father give to the Son the nations for his 
inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for His possession. 
It is the means by which the people that walk in darkness come to see 
the Light, and by which the Light is enabled to shine upon them that 
dwell in deep darkness. 

Because the opportunities and obligations in our own state and 
southland are very great, we may not turn away from the even greater 
opportunities and obligations of our divinely given privilege of world- 
wide operations. The field is the world and we must do our utmost to 
cultivate and thrust in the sickle in all of it. Christ is brooding the 
nations and yearning with tender solicitude and infinite patience to 
bring them into His possession. He is beforehand in every field and on 
every frontier awaiting the coming of His missionaries. It is not "How 
long shall the heathen wait for the Light?" for he is not consciously 
waiting, but how long shall the Light wait for the coming of light 
bearers? Christ outruns all missionaries and, as omnipresent, stands 
knocking at the door of every heart and waits the coming of His 
messengers who shall tell men how to open their hearts that Christ 
may come in. 

Never shall we reach up to our need of giving the Gospel to the 
world until we see it as a privilege. Paul said that if he preached the 
Gospel willingly he had a reward, but if not willingly, he had a steward- 
ship trust — necessity was laid upon him. It is an honor and a privilege 
to be a steward in a great house. In the house of the Lord, which is the 



24 Fifty-Ninth Annual Session 

church, Christians are presented by Jesus and Paul as stewards of the 
Gospel. This stewardship is primary and includes time, talents, oppor- 
tunity and money. No one can be faithful in his stewardship of the 
Gospel who is not a faithful steward in the others. One can no more 
separate stewardship from missions than he can separate light from the 
sun. If we will shift the emphasis from duty to privilege we will rejoice 
in every opportunity to give, and pray, and serve. God loves a cheerful 
giver, whether he gives time, talents, or money, or himself. A luminous, 
and for us an authoritative, word is found in 2 Cor. 9: 6-11. 

"But this I say, he that soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; 
and he that soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. Let each man 
do according as he hath purposed in his heart; not grudgingly, or of 
necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all 
grace abound unto you; that ye, having always all sufficiency in every- 
thing, may abound unto every good work; as it is written, He hath scat- 
tered abroad, He hath given to the poor; His righteousness abideth 
forever. And he that supplieth seed to the sower and bread for food, 
shall supply and multiply your seed for sowing, and increase the fruits 
of your righteousness; ye being enriched in everything unto all liberal- 
ity, which worketh through us thanksgiving to God."

REPORT ON CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

Some weeks ago there appeared in The Baptist of Chicago an edi- 
torial on the subject of theological education in which the statement was 
made that there are now three types of theological schools in our coun- 
try today. In general, the same classifications can be made of all our 
institutions of higher learning. 

The first is the tether type. Students in such schools are tied out to 
graze, but they are confined within certain limits. There may be the 
greenest of fine-flavored grass within the limits of the tether, but they 
are never permitted to taste of anything beyond those limits. The second 
is the shepherd type. In these institutions students are accompanied by 
wise, experienced, consecrated men who know where the pitfalls are and 
where the finest pastures are to be found. It is never said to a student, 
"Thus far shalt thou go, but no farther." Rather he is bidden to explore 
and enjoy the benefits of the whole expanse of the horizon, but always 
with the wise and warm-hearted guidance and assistance of the shepherd 
who knows what is good and what is bad. The third may be described 
as the western plains type. In such institutions the student is carried or 
permitted to go out into the uncharted areas where there are wild 
beasts to prey upon him, storms to be encountered, danger and death 
awaiting him with no eye to guide and no hand to help. 

Each of these types of schools has its advantages. The tether type 
admits of little chance to encounter danger. At the same time it fur- 
nishes small opportunity for development and growth. The western 
plains type provides what is generally called the greatest freedom. No 
limit is placed upon the "original research" made by the student, though 
it may cost him his life. The shepherd type of institution makes the 
strongest appeal of the three to most of us because it never seeks to 
curb freedom, but at the same time makes available to the student 
adequate and safe guidance into all the fields of truth, placing around 
him protection from the dangers which are well known to the shepherd. 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 25 

Now, we believe that our Baptist schools in North Carolina belong 
to the shepherd class. Without doubt we are in need of such schools. 
A Christian school provides a Christian atmosphere. The right kind of 
atmosphere means much. Plutarch well said, "He who dwells with the 
lame learns to limp." A faculty made up of Christian men and women, 
who by precept and example exalt the religion of Jesus and His 
church are much more likely to lead their pupils into a larger and 
happier life experience than those who ignore, or ridicule, or are in- 
different to these higher interests. It is the distinctive mark of the 
Christian school that it strengthens and conserves real and warranted 
Christian faith, is loyal to Christianity and to Christ, wins lives to 
Christ as Lord and Master, enlists and trains for distinctively Christian 
callings. There is an element in education that the State is not giving 
and cannot give. The most important element in education is the making 
of character, and character ought to be distinctly Christian. 

The past record of the Baptist schools in North Carolina justifies 
their existence and demands our continued support. Through all the 
years our Baptist schools have trained more than 3,200 preachers, while 
our State schools have trained about 30. Where shall we look for our 
religious leaders in the years to come? Multitudes of our most useful 
business men, lawyers, physicians, farmers, teachers and educators, 
mothers and fathers have received and needed the type of training pro- 
vided only in our Christian schools. Our Christian schools must continue 
to be the saving salt of the State schools. Christian influences should 
surround our State schools, but these influences must be born and nur- 
tured largely in our Christian schools. 

Our ability and our responsibility are calling upon us to stand by 
our Christian schools and make them strong. Education costs, but 
ignorance costs more. It costs a farmer to produce his crops, but it 
costs him more not to produce them. To complete the raising of a 
million and a half dollars for Baptist schools in North Carolina by 1930 
may seem a difficult thing to do, but to fail to do so will plunge us into 
greater difficulties in the years to come. A man may find it hard to live 
with his income; he will undoubtedly find it harder to live without it. 
If we as Baptists find it a great task to keep going and supporting our 
schools, let us be assured that we shall find it much harder to keep 
up any life and growth if we surrender or weaken or fail to strengthen 
our schools. Eugezste Olive. 

REPORT ON SOCIAL SERVICE 

Including 

ORPHANAGE, MINISTERIAL RELIEF, HOSPITAL 

AND TEMPERANCE 

The Gospel of Jesus Christ finds its inevitable effect through the 
work of Social Service. The Christian religion is a practical religion and 
as such is necessarily concerned with the moral conditions and social 
relationships under which man lives his life here on earth. Jesus healed 
the sick, gave sight to the blind, made the lame to walk. He was and is 
the Light of the World. His followers in the ages since unable to per- 
form miracles have erected and endowed hospitals, schools and orphan- 
ages with the intent to organize and administer social life in accordance 
with the mind of Christ. 



26 Fifty-Ninth Annual Session 

Orphanage 

Perhaps in no line of Christian work is there so large a return for 
faith, so great a compensation for endeavor as in the sympathetic care 
for little children. The Master, when here among men, put a high 
estimate upon the worth of the child, and while holding them fondly 
in His arms, forever committed His followers to their care and protec- 
tion. 

Our Orphanage at Thomasville occupies a position among the first 
in size and efficiency; an institution that North Carolina Baptists can 
look to with just pride. On November 11, 1885, the first child was 
received. Since that time 2667 children have been admitted. At present 
the Orphanage numbers 614, 114 of this number being at the Kennedy 
Home. In addition to this 305 are being aided in their own homes; thus 
giving them the benefit of a mother's love and care. 

A consecrated group of 56 women and 22 men devote all their time 
to the orphanage, and it is impossible to estimate the good that they 
are doing in training the hearts and minds of these little ones. 

In view of the ever increasing demands upon our orphanage, your 
committee recommends that every Sunday School not already doing so, 
designate a certain Sunday in each month to be known as orphanage 
Sunday and urge that the offering be as large as possible; also that 
every church roll up a great Thanksgiving offering, urging the slogan 
of "One Day's Work" for the orphanage. 

Again your committee urges that we give the orphanage the place it 
rightfully claims in our prayers and our giving. 

Ministerial Relief 

The work of ministerial relief is carried on through the Relief and 
Annuity Board of the Southern Baptist Convention with headquarters 
in Dallas, Texas. The Board has just closed its first decade of service. 
During these ten years $1,136,476.48 has been distributed to several 
thousand beneficiaries. More than $1,000,000.00 (one million dollars) of 
this sum has been distributed through the Relief Department. At the 
present there are 1053 ministers and widows on the roll besides 150 or 
more orphan children who are being indirectly aided. 

The total sum paid to the Board's relief beneficiaries last year was 
$118,520.47. The applications for aid from the relief department have 
multiplied even while the receipts have steadily declined. Every Baptist 
should pray and labor to increase the offerings for our great and 
languishing causes. 

The Annuity Department is sustained in three ways, First, by the 
regular payments of ministers and missionaries who hold certificates of 
membership. Second, by the interest earnings on the annuity endowment 
and reserves, and thirdly, by a portion of the funds contributed through 
the Co-operative Program. This fund is paying the maximum annuity 
of $500.00 to members who have passed their 68th birthday or who have 
become totally and permanently disabled. The benefits paid during the 
past year totaled $31,274.21. The present assets of the Board in this 
department total $2,202,647.98. 

Southern Baptists are looking forward to the time when they can 
provide for their ministers and for the widows and orphans of minis- 
ters in a really worthy way. This can best be done through the pro- 
posed Service Annuity Plan. It is the hope of the Relief and Annuity 
Board that this plan can be made operative by 1930 or 1931.

Hospitals 

The North Carolina Baptist Hospital reached its fifth milestone on 
May 29th of this year. Nearly ten thousand patients have received 
treatment since it began its work. Only eternity can reveal the suffering 
it has relieved and the lives it has saved; we ought to thank God and 
take courage. 

Our Hospital is well located, well equipped and has a fine staff of 
physicians, and a large number of cultured, refined Christian women 
who minister in the spirit of love and prayer. 

Thus far the Hospital has kept out of debt, but with $4,000.00 less 
for charity work than was received last year, with an income of only 
$12,000.00 from Mother's Day, and a debt to be paid on the new 
Nurses' Home, it seems now tha tthe management will have to either 
turn down a number of free cases or go heavily in debt. Something 
must be done to save the situation. The management suggests the 
following which your committee recommends: 1. That we urge our peo- 
ple to carry their pay patients there when possible and give the 
hospital the advantage of this increased revenue. 2. That churches send- 
ing charity patients will either themselves pay the sum of $1.50 a day 
or get the family and community to join them in raising this much. 
3rd — Pray for the hospital, talk it in Church and Sunday School. 4th — • 
Put on the program, and take an offering for this great work on 
Mother's Day. 

Do all this for Jesus' sake and for the sake of your brother for whom 
our Master died. 

Temperance 

In the process of time questions arise which demand the voice of the 
people before they can be settled. Such was the case when the people 
of North Carolina outlawed the liquor traffic, May 26, 1908. Our prob- 
lem today is the enforcing of the law already on the statute books. The 
close observer readily agrees that this statute has greatly reduced the 
consumption of whiskey in our state. 

To enforce any law there must be a strong public sentiment in favor 
of such a law. Therefore, it is our chief duty to create public opinion 
against the whiskey traffic, and favor stringent execution of the law. 

Now as never before we urge our people to a deeper consecration, 
keener vigilance, and God given wisdom. 

Our Baptist hosts may be counted on to scrutinize the records and 
utterances of all parties in public office from the smallest to the great- 
est, and to see to it that dry men are elevated to positions of public 
trust where this great moral and social issue is involved. 
Respectfully submitted, 

C. E. Byrd. 

REPORT OF W. M. U. 

"Like living things on swiftest wings 
The days and weeks go by." 

So we find ourselves again at the close of another year. To the 
W. M. U. of Mt. Zion Association and the entire Southland this year 
stands out as one of prime importance, because with the passing of 1928 
we are celebrating our fortieth anniversary, not with any new or untried 
thing but with an enlargement of our work along all lines. Truly, 



28 Fifty-Ninth Annual Session 

in the words of our watchword, we are endeavoring to "Enlarge — 
Spare not — Lengthen — Strengthen." We have tried to build our program 
around these words of our Master, "Look," "Give," "Pray," "Go," 
"Lift up your eyes and look upon the fields," "Give and it shall be given 
unto you," "Go ye therefore and make disciples of all nations," "Pray 
ye therefore the Lord of the harvest," and surely a program built 
around these words cannot fail. 

Although we have not been able to accomplish all that we hoped to, 
the year has been very fruitful. We feel that a few of the things men- 
tioned below denote progress and faithful work among our women: 
First — We ranked third in the State last year in our gifts to the 
Cooperative Program, giving a total of $19,104.22 to this purpose. 

Second — Of the nine W. M. U.'s in this State receiving the purple 
banner from the Southern Baptist Convention three came to our Asso- 
ciation, First Baptist, Grace, and Watts Street, all of Durham. This 
means that at least five graded A-l organizations were maintained for 
the entire year in these churches. 

Third — The young people's banner was awarded to us at Asheville 
last March, signifying that our young peoples' organizations have done 
the best work in this State. 

We are glad to report that Miss Ruby Barker, formerly of Durham, 
is now at Louisville Training School, using the scholarship given by our 
organizations. Several outside worthy contributions have been made 
other than those to the Cooperative Program, Centennial Fund, and 
other objects fostered by our organizations; one of these is a love gift 
amounting to $86.00 made by the Woman's Missionary Societies of Dur- 
ham to Mr. and Mrs. Bunn Olive, thereby aiding their return to the 
mission field in China. Our women have been very interested in the 
study of missions and because of being informed of the dire need their 
interest now is keen, and they feel impelled to put forth their best efforts 
in making the return of missionaries to their fields possible. 

Just now we are very zealous to attain the goal given us as our Ruby 
Anniversary Aim. At this time we earnestly ask for the cooperation of 
every pastor and interested person in helping us strengthen the weak 
organizations and putting new ones into the churches having none. Our 
aim is five in every church, all at work. Too, our gifts must be generous 
if we reach our financial goal. 

In leaving the work as superintendent I wish to thank the entire 
Association for the aid and cooperation given me and I wish here to 
commend to you most heartily my worthy successor, Mrs. J. L. Gates. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. J. M. Cheek. 

REPORT OF SUNDAY SCHOOLS 

The present day Sunday School sets itself to the accomplishment of 
a three-fold objective: 

1. Reaching the masses. Marvelous progress has been made in this 
field, but when we consider that a large part of our Sunday School 
membership is made up of little children we realize there are many 
thousands of professing Christians who are not members of the Bible 
School. 

2. Teaching the people or making the school a real school. In order 
to make a real school trained teachers, definite curriculum of study and 
a graded and organized constituency are needed. 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 29 

3. The up-to-date Sunday School places primary emphasis upon 
evangelistic teaching. To teach the Word, win the lost and train them 
in Christian Service is the ultimate aim in all our work. How well this 
work of teaching and training has been done is attested by the number 
of people, 1,030,693 who have been baptized in the South during the past 
five years. In North Carolina last year there. were 18,449 baptisms. 
Most of these came from the Sunday Schools. The work is important. 
The task is challenging. 

Some things that retard progress are: (1) Lack of a definite Sunday 
School program in so many churches. (2) Lack of vitalized organization. 
(3) Untrained teachers and executive leaders. (4) Inadequate equip- 
ment. (5) Spiritual inertia. 

We urge that our churches face forward in a consecrated effort to 
reach the above objectives, and overcome all obstacles standing in the 
way of reaching the people, teaching the Word, winning the lost and 
utilizing them in heroic service for the King of Kings. 

Your Committee suggests that this Association take definite steps 
at this session to bring our Sunday School Association into working 
harmony with the plan promulgated and used by the Sunday School 
Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. If necessary, we recommend 
that the Moderator appoint a Committee of three or five members with 
instructions to confer with our present Sunday School Associational 
officers, with a view to realize this objective. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Martin W. Buck. 

REPORT OF THE BAPTIST YOUNG PEOPLE'S UNION 

As North Carolina Baptists, we are justly proud of the great host 
of young people that have accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior and 
Lord, through the influence of the preaching of the Gospel of the Son 
of God. Since we have these fine young people in our churches, we 
should realize that we have not only a great responsibility but a mar- 
velous opportunity to advance the Kingdom of God through them. Every 
church should carefully nurse, nurture, guard and train her young peo- 
ple. Every new-born soul in God's kingdom is just a babe in Christ and 
does not always know how to walk the new path that he has chosen. 
Therefore, he must be taught how to testify to the goodness of God and 
how and when and where to work for the master. 

It is the duty of the church to exert the very best influence possible 
upon these boys and girls who have surrendered their young lives to 
the Lord. They should have a place in the church that will enable them 
to grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus 
Christ. A church, or denomination without a training department is 
like a garden that is planted but never cultivated. 

The Baptist Young People's Union is the greatest training agency 
for the young people in our denomination. It's object is eight-fold. 
First, to increase the spirituality of the young Christians; second, to 
train them in all essential church activities; third, edification in scrip- 
tural knowledge; fourth, to instruct them in Baptist doctrine and his- 
tory; fifth, to enlist them in all forms of missionary endeavor; sixth, 
to help young Christians find themselves in kingdom service; seventh, 
to cultivate the missionary spirit; eighth, to train them in church fellow- 



30 Fifty-Ninth Annual Session 

ship, in social service and in recreational life. This is a great aim and a 
challenging task. The youth of today are our churches of tomorrow. Let 
us not neglect this all important matter of training youth. 

To accomplish this great task our Sunday School Board at Nashville 
and the General Board of our Baptist State Convention foster the train- 
ing program. In the State we have two State-wide secretaries in the 
field, these being James A. Ivey, General Secretary, and Miss Winnie 
Rickett, secretary of Junior and Intermediate work. We also have a 
field worker, Miss Marguerite Harrison, in the Eastern half of the state 
and Miss Mary Frances Biggers, in the Western half of the state. There 
are also four Associational workers maintained by the Baptist Sunday 
School Board at Nashville and the Association employing them. These 
workers conduct training schools and institutes, hold associational and 
district rallies, conferences and conventions. Their services are obtain- 
able for work in city, town, and rural churches. 

There are 2,368 churches in North Carolina. Approximately 1,150 of 
these churches have unions, with a total of 1,997 unions, but there are 
1,218 churches, or more than half of the Baptist churches in North 
Carolina that have on such training for their young people. 

The Mount Zion Associational B. Y. P. U. was reorganized at a call 
meeting held at Hillsboro, on May 27th of this year. John W. Dunaway 
of Durham was elected president, L. H. Tapscott, Intermediate Leader, 
Miss Mary Haynes, Junior Leader. At the first regular associational 
meeting on June 10th, the association was divided into four districts 
as follows: Alamance, Orange, Durham, and Chatham and Durham. The 
following were elected as district leaders: C. D. Gattis, W. B. Carr, 
K. B. Kennedy and Herman Lawrence. There are 52 churches in this 
association and in 26 of these churches we have a total of 65 reunions. 
This is splendid, but we must not forget that there are 26 churches 
which have no unions and are without this valuable training. Realizing 
this fact, the executive committee endorsed the plan of having an asso- 
ciation-wide enlargement and training campaign November 2nd to 10th, 
1929, which is the first date open that the state B. Y. P. U. force can 
aid us in such a campaign. Therefore, we recommend and request the 
wholehearted cooperation of all pastors, church leaders, and parents in 
this effort to organize and perfect a union or unions in every church in 
this association. 

Respectfully submitted, 

W. B. Carr. 



PROCEEDINGS 

Woman's Missionary Union 



The annual meeting of the W. M. U. of Mt. Zion Association, 
held with Grace Baptist Church, Durham, was called to order 
by the Superintendent, Mrs. J. M. Cheek, at ten o'clock. 

The new W. M. U. song, "The Kingdom is Coming," was 
sung, after which Rev. George T. Watkins, pastor of enter- 
taining church, conducted the devotional. The audience then 
stood and sang "Stand up for Jesus." The address of welcome 
was beautifully given by Miss Louise Watkins. In the absence 
of Mrs. C. E. Hackney, Mrs. Cheek responded to the words of 
welcome. 

Roll call of societies was then taken up. Twenty-two churches 
of the association responded with splendid reports from all 
departments of the W. M. U. ; showing that much time, thought 
and work had been put upon this work. 

The annual report of the Superintendent, Mrs. Cheek, was 
given. Her message as usual was one full of enthusiasm and 
inspiration. The minutes of the Executive Committee were read, 
approved and ordered filed. They were as follows : 

First — That the Associational Training School Fund be dis- 
continued and that all gifts to this object be sent to the State 
Treasurer. 

Second — That an Honor Roll be kept of the societies winning 
banners, but that no banner be awarded to any society to be kept. 

Third — That the time of meeting be changed to the last 
Thursday in August for the convenience of the entertaining 
church. 

Fourth — That we consider the advisability of having our min- 
utes printed in book form separate from the regular associational 
minutes as formerly. 

Fifth — That in view of the fact that our nominating com- 
mittee be elected under the present plan, do not have time to do 
the work effectively, we suggest that the Executive Board appoint 
this committee at least three months before the regular session; 
this committee to consider vacancies, and recommend officers to 
the general session for the coming year. This plan is not to 
exclude other nominations that might be made from the floor at 
the regular session. 

A lovely solo was rendered by Miss Mary Louise Carlton. 
Mrs. J. G. Tingen, leader of the R. A. and Sunbeams, gave a 



32 Fifty-Ninth Annual Session 

most encouraging report of the work done in those departments 
during the year. Mrs. D. E. Ward, leader of the Y. W. A. and 
G. A., spoke very enthusiastically of the work with the girls and 
young women. Mrs. Ward then introduced Mrs. S. E. Ayers, 
missionary to China, who brought a stirring message on condi- 
tions in that section of China. A rising vote of thanks was given 
her for this wonderful talk. 

The next on program was an address by Mrs. W. N. Jones, 
President of North Carolina W. M. U. This was greatly enjoyed 
by all who were present. Just before lunch the various committees 
were appointed. 

The afternoon session began at two-fifteen o'clock with the 
superintendent in the chair. Mrs. E. Clyde Johnson led the devo- 
tional. This was in the form of a memorial service. "When the 
Roll is Called up Yonder," was sung, after which Mrs. Johnson 
took for her Scripture lesson a part of the 14th chapter of John. 
The names of those who had passed away during the last year 
were read, followed with prayer by Dr. Watkins. Then the con- 
gregation stood and sang "Shall We Gather at the River." 

Minutes of the morning session were read by acting secre- 
tary. Reports were heard from other officers. Report of secretary 
and treasurer given, and at this time it was unanimously decided 
to use the amount $53.00 borrowed from the Training School 
Fund to further the work in the association. (Expense Fund.) 

An interesting report on the Ruby Anniversary Campaign 
was given by Mrs. W. A. Pope. The mission study report was 
presented by the chairman, Mrs. J. M. Whitted. This was a most 
gratifying report, showing that much work had been put on this 
study. 

The banners for mission study were given to the following 
societies: W. M. S. Temple Church, Rural W. M. S., Yates 
Church, Y. W. A. Angie.r Ave., G. A. Angier Ave., R. A. to First 
Baptist Church and Sunbeams to Watts Street Church. 

Report on personal service was given by Mrs. C. H. Poe. 
This report also was most encouraging and far surpassed any 
report of previous years. Mrs. W. S. Olive spoke on Steward- 
ship. She urged the women to increase the number of tithers. 

Miss Nellie Page made the report on Standard of Excellence 
and Literature. Mrs. G. C. Carr made a talk on "Some Problems 
in W. M. U. Work." Discussions were led by Mrs. Clyde Johnson 
and Mrs. J. B. Cox.

message, as we feel it has played a great part in the creation of this 
much desired atmosphere. 

To Mrs. S. E. Ayers, missionary to China, we feel greatly indebted

HISTORICAL REPORT 

History of Temple Baptist Church, Durham, N. C. 

Forty-one years ago, when the progressive city of Durham began its 
growth and development, and was making strides by leaps and bounds, the 
Baptist Denomination, with a fixed purpose, determined to keep pace with 
the movements of the city. It began to expand by establishing and building 
a Baptist church house of worship in all parts of the city — that the people 
might hear the Gospel as we believe it, and as it is taught in the New 
Testament. 

The First Baptist Church, then having grown so large, numerically, and 
her limbs expanding so far, found it necessary and needful to ingraft a 
new plant in order to produce a new growth. So the project was matured 
and the new plant was set out on Chapel Hill Street in the city and named 
"Blackwell Memorial Baptist Church." 

The Church was organized by Rev. C. C. Newton and C. Durham of 
the First Church, on the 29th day of January, 1888, as an independent 
organization. There were seventy-nine charter members from the following 
churches: Durham First Church, 64; Rose of Sharon, 2; Mount Herman, 3; 
Cedar Fork, 4; Goldsboro, 3; Apex, 1; and Chapel Hill, 2. It was received 
into the Mount Zion Association as an independent organization when the 
Association convened in October, 1888, at Mount Carmel Baptist Church. 
The church was represented by Brethren T. J. Whitaker, A. D. Holland, and 
L. W. Highsmith as delegates. It was never a beneficiary of the board. 

Rev. C. C. Newton was the first pastor. He served the church from 
January to April, at a salary of $700.00 per year. Rev. Will B. Oliver was 
then called and served the church until the fall of 1890. During the year 
1889 there were added to the membership of the church seventy-two persons, 
forty-five by baptism and twenty-seven by letter. The church contributed 
$2,147.34 to all objects during Brother Oliver's administration. His salary 
was $1,000.00 annually. 

In January, 1890, Rev. J. N. Booth accepted the call to the church at 
a salary of $500.00 and parsonage. During Brother Booth's pastorate the 
name of the church was changed from the Blackwell Memorial to the 
Second Baptist Church of Durham. The minutes of the Association show 
the first report of a Sunday School from this church. The Superintendent 
was Brother T. J. Whitaker, and there were enrolled 175. 

Rev. A. A. Butler, a ministerial student of Wake Forest College, accepted 
a call, and was ordained after he took charge of the work by a presbytery 
consisting of the following men: J. L. White, pastor of the First Baptist 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 13 

Church of Durham; C. A. Woodson, pastor of country churches around 
Durham; J. F. MacDume, pastor of country churches; and Brethren W. H. 
and J. B. Weatherspoon. Brother Butler married a Miss Christian, daughter 
of Brother John Christian, who was a member of the church at that time. 
He served the church two years and resigned when Brother George J. 
Dowell was called. Brother Dowell served as pastor from November, 1895. 
to 1898, at a salary of $450.00. He was a faithful servant of God and served 
the church well. 

In February, 1898, Rev. C. J. D. Parker was called at a salary of 
$500.00. Brother Parker accepted the work at a very opportune time. The 
foundation had been laid for the church by the brethren preceding him. He 
did a great work, especially among the young people. A young men's prayer 
meeting was held every Monday evening and it was there that many of our 
young men were inspired for greater service for the Master. It was during 
his ministry that three of our outstanding young men felt the call to a 
higher plane of usefulness; namely, Dr. J. Henry Highsmith, who is now 
Director, Division School Inspection for North Carolina; Dr. Jesse B. 
Weatherspoon, Professor of Homiletics and Christian Sociology in the 
Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky; and Preston 
Epps, one of our greatest gospel singers, and a member of the faculty of 
Furman University, Greenville, South Carolina. Among other young men 
who went out in this same atmosphere and are now occupying positions of 
trust and distinction, are Dr. Louis Highsmith, practicing physician in 
Tennessee; Herbert Weatherspoon, an outstanding lawyer of Raleigh; 
Portlock Wilson, manager of a large department store in Atlanta, Ga.; 
Benton Pendergraph, who is principal of a high school at Portsmouth, Va. 

The church, at this period of its history, seemed to have caught a vision. 
The crisis was on, and the vision was clear. They were not disobedient to 
the heavenly vision. They needed a leader of courage, conviction and 
determination. God seems to have led them to the right man for his record 
shows him up equal to the task. He had a mind filled with good, sound, 
practical sense; a heart filled with a religion that anchored his soul in Jesus 
Christ, his Master; and a love for men's souls that caused people to love 
him, irrespective of creed. Rev. W. C. Barrett made an impression on the 
lives of the members of the church for good, and the people at large — 
especially of the Mount Zion Association — that will never be forgotten. 
He served the church faithfully and effectively for seven years, from 
1905-1912. An annex which doubled the capacity of the church was built 
during his ministry. This church entertained the first B. Y. P. U. Convention 
the year following the completion of the church. 

Rev. J. T. Riddick succeeded Brother Barrett as pastor. He was another 
spiritual giant, who assumed the work of the church with zeal and determi- 
nation that its progress was not impeded nor hindered in the least. Perhaps 
no preacher has ever been to Durham as pastor who was more appreciated 
and loved than Brother Riddick. He was called to the pastorate of the 
church in 1912, and served very acceptably until 1917. During his pastorate 
the church made progress along all lines of work. The membership increased 
from 516 to 818; the pastor's salary increased from $2100.00 to $2400.00 
per annum; the Sunday School advanced in numbers from 457 to 618. 
Other auxiliaries of the church made similar advancements. Brother Barrett, 
with others who preceded him, laid a foundation broad and deep, upon 
which Brother Riddick and others who succeeded him could build a church 
worthy of the name of a church. The secret of the success of this church has 
been cooperation and consecration on the part of both pastors and church. 



14 Sixtieth Annual Session 

September, 1917, Rev. W. A. Ayers was called to the pastorate of the 
church, and served the church until 1919. He was a strong preacher, and 
although his stay was short the church was greatly strengthened. The name 
of the church was changed during Brother Ayers' administration from Second 
Baptist Church to Temple Baptist Church. In December, 1919, Dr. E. D. 
Poe followed Brother Ayers in the pastorate of the church. Dr. Poe and 
Mrs. Poe did a great work for the church, especially among the young 
people. It was during his ministry that two of our young women — Mrs. 
J. S. Corpending (nee Miss Annie Crutchfield) and Mrs. N. C. Teague (nee 
Miss Mozelle Breeze) decided to enter our W. M. U. Training School at 
Louisville, Ky., and prepare themselves for greater service for the Master. 
One of the greatest revivals in the history of the church was held during 
his ministry. Dr. Poe did the preaching and seventy-four members were 
added to the church. He resigned, after nearly three years of effective service, 
to the sad regret of the church. 

On September 1, 1922, Rev. Trela D. Collins, the present pastor, accepted 
the unanimous call of the church, and began his ministry. Brother Collins 
is a graduate of Wake Forest College, receiving his Bachelor of Arts degree 
in 1910; Bachelor of Divinity Degree from Crozer Theological Seminary in 
1913; and Master of Arts Degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 
1914. On December 1, 1922, Miss Wynona Chaney became Educational 
Director and Pastor's Assistant. 

During the seven years of their leadership there has been six hundred 
and two additions to the church. A new pipe organ has been installed at a 
cost of $10,000.00. A new Sunday School building has been erected and 
other additions to the physical equipment, amounting to $25,000.07. During 
the seven-year period $129,235.07 has been contributed for all purposes : 
which is an average of $17,798.08 per year. Of this amount $6,258.23 per 
year has been given to benevolence. 

There is no church in the Mount Zion Association that has made a 
better record for loyalty to Christ and His cause and Kingdom; to their 
Pastor and his appeals for kingdom work; for fellowship and love for each 
other; the support of the Gospel in their midst; and the needs of their 
community and their church. The secret of success in this church has been 
in a large measure cooperation and consecration of pastors and members 
of the church. 

14. Prayer for W. C. Barrett was offered by Geo. T. Watkins. 
On motion C. S. Green was appointed committee to telegraph 
Brother Barrett our appreciation of his work in this Association 
and express our sympathy for him in his present illness.

M. W. Buck. Finance Committee, W. E. Young, A. W. Cain, C. 
M. Walker, H. L. Ferguson. 

16. W. E. Stanley read the Report on Ministerial Relief. 
On motion to adopt, Geo. T. Watkins lead the discussion. Bro. 
J. M. Hilliard was given three minutes additional time to discuss 
same, and the report was adopted. 

MINISTERIAL RELIEF 

We should feel very grateful to our Heavenly Father for the way he 
has led his people to make it possible for the servants of His who have 
given their lives in His service, to be taken care of as the evening shadows 
gather around them. Many of these soldiers of the Cross are now aged and 
infirm, facing the evening time of life with very little saved, having received 
only a very small salary during the years they have labored for the Master. 
Many of them with the qualifications which they have, could have com- 
manded a much larger salary than they received, in some other field of 
work. As long as we have men on the firing line for Christ, giving their 
lives in preaching the gospel, it will be necessary for our denomination to 
try to provide adequate support for those who have fought in the battle in 
the heat of the day. I am sure nothing would make a minister happier than 
to know that he and his life companion will be provided for when he is 
no longer able to be active in the Master's service. Every minister knows 
that sooner or later he will have to retire to private life. It is sweet and 
assuring to know that when the time comes, he can do so without being 
an object of charity ; that he can still hold up his head and walk with 
respect among the others of his calling, because he has been provided for 
by the gratitude, thoughtfulness, and generosity of the denomination whom 
he served with a small income to supplement his means of support. Each 
of us should consider it a happy privilege in helping make this possible. 
Then, too, if we are to have the best young men to enter the Gospel 
Ministry wholeheartedly and give themselves freely to the Master's Cause, 
we must make this part of the work more attractive. Our board has accom- 
plished wonderful results with the limited income which they have had at 
their disposal, but they are very much in need of funds at the present time. 
My earnest plea and prayer today is that both laymen and preachers 
will go back to their respective churches and urge their membership to do 
more for these soldiers of the Cross who have told the old story and blazed 
the way that we all might reap the results of their labors. 
Respectfully submitted, 

VV. E. Stanley. 

17. Report on Temperance was read by C. F. Hudson and 
discussed by Eugene Olive, Roy A. Morris, and B. G. Early, and 
adopted. 

REPORT ON TEMPERANCE 

Since our last meeting the people of our country have expressed them- 
selves very forcibly concerning the matter of temperance. While Baptists 
were largely responsible for the separation of church and state, there has 
never been a more loyal group to the Constitution. Therefore we re-affirm 
the Baptist position when we urge the people to support the Eighteenth 
Amendment. Baptists voiced their attitude toward the manufacture and 



16 Sixtieth Annual Session 

sale of alcoholic beverages long before there was a law forbidding it. In 
matters of morals we are a mighty force in moulding public opinion, and 
we should not despise our holy heritage in this respect. The time has come 
when the average politician fears the voice of the Church more than any 
other force on earth. Let us as teachers and preachers use well our every 
opportunity to aid in the destruction of one of our greatest enemies, and 
true to our traditions, may none be more loyal American citizens. 

Charles F. Hudson. 

18. On motion Walter M. Williams succeeded Brother Buck 
on Reorganization Committee. 

19. M. L. Jones made an announcement in regard to the 
B. Y. P. U. Campaign to be staged in November. 

20. At 12:30 o'clock the Association adjourned to meet at 
1:30 P. M. Closing prayer by W. S. Olive. 

TUESDAY AFTERNOON 

21. The Association reconvened at 1:30 and after singing 
"More About Jesus" Vice-Moderator W. G. Hall called it to 
order and J. C. McGregor conducted the devotional, reading 
Psalms 39 and led in prayer. 

22. Statement of objective of the Associational Enlargement 
Program was made by T. D. Collins. 

23. Report on Sunday Schools was read by C. R. Pittard. 
On motion the report was adopted. 

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

At the annual meeting of our Sunday School Association held in March,

Durham; Group Superintendents as listed above. 

Our association cooperated with our State Sunday School Secretary in a 
great S. S. Revival and Enlargement Campaign, Sept. 7-15. This campaign 
was a wonderful success, and time alone will reveal its influence for good 
in our association. 

Respectfully submitted, 

C. R. Pittard. 

24. In view of the Enlargement Program this Association 
is to put on, Eugene Olive made a motion to change the Constitu- 
tion and the following was added to Article 10: 

"An executive committee shall be elected annually and shall serve only 
one year unless re-elected. 

"The executive committee shall consist of the following: Moderator, 
clerk, treasurer of the executive committee, the presidents of the Sunday 
School and B. Y. P. U. organizations, and nine other members representing 
the various districts of the association, of whom nine shall constitute a 
quorum. 

"It shall be the duty of this committee to cooperate with the Baptist 
State Convention and the churches of the association in whatever efforts 
seems wise for the advancement of Christ's kingdom, and they shall take any 
steps necessary to put in successful operation any plans adopted by the 
association. 

"The committee shall be called in session the second Tuesday in each 
quarter, i. e., the second Tuesday in January, April, July, and October, 
unless there is sufficient reason for a change in date. After a separate session 
the committee shall bring its recommendation before the ministers' confer- 
ence of the association for discussion and suggestion. 

25. C. R. Pittard, speaking for the Committee to Nominate 
Members of Executive Committee and in view to the recent 
change in the Constitution, nominated the following: Martin W. 
Buck, W. A. Young, John E. Sharp, Eugene Olive, F. E. Steed, 
Ira D. S. Knight, C. S. Green, C. L. Upchurch, W. A. Hinton, and 
on motion the Clerk cast the vote of the Association for them as 
members of the Executive Committee for one year. 

26. On motion all the old officers were nominated and J. B. 
Mills cast the vote of the Association for them. Walter M. Wil- 
liams, Moderator; W. G. Hall, Vice-Moderator; W. E. Young, 
Treasurer; S. W. Andrews, Auditor; and J. F. McDuffie, His- 
torian. 

27. John W. Dunaway read the report on B. Y. P. U. The 
report was discussed by J. A. Ivey and C. A. Maddry and adopted. 

ANNUAL REPORT OF B. Y. P. U. FOR 1929 
The Local Situation 

First. The first thing that we want to consider is our possibilities. 
Using the figures secured in the Sunday School Campaign and estimating 



18 Sixtieth Annual Session 

the Baptist possibilities of Durham, after consultation with some of our 
leaders, it would seem safe to say our Baptist possibilities are about 33,000. 
We have approximately 15,000 church members. Therefore our B. Y. P. U. 
possibilities must be around 8,000. Last year we had 1,372 members enrolled 
in 65 unions in 26 churches. These figures would indicate we have less than 
one-fourth of our possibilities enrolled, to say nothing of the great number 
of Baptist students at Duke and Carolina. 

Second. The number of unions we ought to have to reach these 
possibilities. It is not an easy matter to say just how many unions would 
be necessary to reach all of the possibilities in this association, but it will 
be safe to say that if we are to in any way measure up to our opportunity 
we must not only double, but triple the number of unions and their 
membership. None of our churches are too small for at least one union 
and there are only a very few that should not have at least three or more 
unions to do their best work. 

Third. At the present time we have 74 unions organized in 31 churches. 
Using our average enrollment of last year, it would require 364 unions to 
take care of our possibilities, or five times our present organization. 

Fourth. How are we going to secure the organization needed? (1). Our 
state and south-wide leaders are now emphasizing general organizations and 
adult unions, and a greater emphasis is being made on B. Y. P. U. as a 
church responsibility. (2). Our Training and Enlargement Campaign No- 
vember 2-10 gives us the opportunity of realizing our aims in this respect. 
This campaign is made possible through the action of our state convention 
in selecting Mount Zion as one of three associations for special demonstra- 
tion work. Our churches are to be regrouped and our organization read- 
justed to conform to the Sunday School organization as printed in the 
minutes. 

B. Y. P. U. Work in the State 

First. Our last state convention held at Meredith College, June 18-20, 
was considered the best program and the most constructive convention 
ever held. The retiring president, Brother M. L. Jones, did a great work 
during the year and Rev. Charles Howard, of Louisburg, is a most worthy 
successor. Brother Howard is a live wire in B. Y. P. U. work and we are 
looking forward to a great work being done during his administration. 
There has been a growing demand from the western part of the state that 
the convention shall meet in that part of the state on alternating years, so 
the convention will meet next year at Mars Hill, June 24-26. 

Second. The regional convention will meet next year at Burlington on 
April 4th and 5th. Rev. Robert L. Councilman, of Burlington, is the able 
president of this region, embracing eleven associations. 

Third. North Carolina is indeed fortunate in having as our state secre- 
tary Rev. James A. Ivey, and he has an able assistant in Miss Winnie 
Rickett, as Junior-Intermediate Secretary. This year we have two new field 
workers, Miss Mary Ayscue, of Raleigh, for the eastern section, and Mr. 
Andrew Morgan, of Marion, for the western section of the state. Mr. Ivey 
is to be commended for securing two such workers for our B. Y. P. U. staff. 
Our state staff is an able and efficient working force and I have found it a 
great pleasure to work with them. 

Our South-Wide Work 

First. It it with a deep regret that we record the passing of our Brother, 
L. P. Leavell, pioneer B. Y. P. U. worker, which occurred on June 4th of 
this year. 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 19 

Second. J. E. Lambdin, former secretary, of Alabama, and noted 
B. Y. P. U. author, succeeds him in this great work. 

Third. The first great South-Wide B. Y. P. U. Convention will meet 
in Memphis, December 31- January 1 and 2. This meeting is the result of 
the South-Wide Sunday School Meeting. All of our churches are urged to 
send delegates to this great meeting. 

If we do this intensive work in our churches in November and follow 
it up by sending representatives to these conventions, Mount Zion Associa- 
tion should have its best year in young people's work. 
Respectfully submitted, 

John W. Dunaway, President, 
Mount Zion Associational B. Y. P. U. 

28. Mrs. J. L. Gates, Superintendent of the Woman's Work 
of the Association, read the report on W. M. U. and the matter 
was discussed very ably by Mrs. R. Homer Andrews and adopted. 

REPORT ON W. M. IL, 1928-'29 

It is difficult to estimate the progress of an organization for a period of 
only twelve months, when we take into account the fact that we are carry- 
ing one hundred thirty societies, because in this number we naturally have 
failures, as well as successes, and during the year we have to lose some of 
the weaker ones, and others do not function as we had hoped. During this 
period we closed our Ruby Anniversary Year with 26 new societies added 
to our list, but even from these we've had some losses, so with those that 
have been organized since the 26 additions, we can only report a net gain 
of thirty. 

But we do not count the real progress of our work in numbers of 
societies added, but in the strength of the individual organization, and the 
spirit that prevails in our work generally. 

A society that does not lend strength to the church and community to 
which it belongs, whose members do not develop in Christian graces, as 
well as in knowledge about our Mission Fields, is not filling the place for 
which it was intended, hence it has been our purpose this year to try in 
every way possible to stimulate our organizations and urge them to realize 
the wonderful privileges of being "Laborers together with God." 

In many churches the results have been most gratifying and the influence 
of the activities of the W. M. U. is recognized as a valuable asset to both 
church and community. 

It is not the purpose of the W. M. U. to in any way supplant the 
church, or to detract from its strength, but seeks only to supplement its 
work by cooperating in all phases of church activities, and gladly serving 
wherever needed. 

From a financial standpoint we have not succeeded as we have hoped, for 
as we grow in numbers we should increase our gifts to Kingdom interests, 
but instead we have shared with our churches the season of financial 
depression, and in many cases our gifts to the cooperative program have been 
used for local expense, hence for this and other reasons we are falling short 
of our apportionment. We wish this were otherwise but we are not dis- 
couraged, because we do not believe the deeper meaning of W. M. U. work 
is represented by dollars and cents. 

As we enter into the new Associational year we are trying to realize 
more fully that the "Master is calling to us" to reconsecrate ourselves to his 
service, to lend ourselves more fully to the promotion of His Kingdom, to 
the end that our Churches may be strengthened, our spiritual lives deepened

co-laborers with God.

31. Report on Christian Education was read by C. S. Nor- 
ville. On motion to adopt, Coy C. Carpenter, Allen J. Easley, and 
A. C. Reid brought the Association great messages on the subject. 
Report was adopted. 

REPORT ON CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

Baptists have ever recognized that Christianity is not a mere product 
of training and culture, but the result of a work of God, finding its genesis 
in a God-surrendered heart and its goal in an abiding fellowship of God. 
In this sense religion is independent of the philosophy of religion. Chris- 
tianity is no mere appendage to ethics, commerce, and culture. The reality 
of spiritual life is of first concern to Baptists; the erudite theories about 
that life must be secondary. The Christ-life in the individual is the center; 
all else, however beautiful and worthwhile, is circumference. 

But this truism among Baptists, so far from excusing us from the 
doing of educational work, brings us under most solemn obligation to make 
the force and beauty of the Christ-life, as held and taught by Baptists, 
effective in the educative activities of our generation. Knowledge cannot, 
indeed, of itself put one into the kingdom, but knowledge is the true and 
biblical approach to the kingdom, while misdirected and misinterpreted 
knowledge has at all times kept multitudes out of the kingdom. The future 
of our evangelical message forces us out into today's streams of culture and 
education. Baptists have ever been thinkers, and we cannot hope to do 
our work well in the future without bringing the mentality of our people 
to the highest efficiency possible. The education of American youth is too 
far-reaching in its kingdom significance for Baptists to ever think of turning 
it over wholly to the state. 

Baptists have profited much from the work of their academies, colleges 
and seminaries. These have been mighty factors in putting Baptists and 
their claims before the world, in training our noblest workers at home and 
abroad and in giving impetus to all our varied Baptist activities. Our 
schools have been the most valuable agency, through which Baptists have 
made their contribution to kingdom progress. We should be glad to pay the 
cost of presenting through our schools the Baptist message to the world, 
and for us to ignore completely Christian education would mean failure in 
trying to get that message across to the present generation. There may be 
instances where a given one of our schools has blundered in giving that 
message, but for that matter some of our churches also have blundered in 
that task. Past blunders and negligence should not keep us from promoting 
so great a work as Christian education. 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 21 

Baptists have a notable record in the promotion and support of state 
schools and we bespeak for Baptists ever a hearty cooperation with the 
state in looking after the moral and religious life of students in the state 
schools. Southern Baptists have maintained for years the Baptist Student 
Union, a plan for combined Baptist work on the campuses of the Baptist, 
tax-supported and privately endowed schools of the South. Of the more than 
100,000 boys and girls who are away from Baptist homes attending some 
sort of school, only about 35,000 are in Baptist schools. Surely Baptists are 
doing well in trying to make some contribution to the moral and religious 
life of those other 65,000 students. The Department of Southern Baptist 
Student Work of the Baptist Sunday School Board, with Frank H. Leavell, 
Secretary, assisted by two associates, in charge, are doing a most effective 
work of this kind. In addition, there are four state-wide secretaries and 
thirty secretaries on local campuses. 

Perhaps we need to be reminded, at least occasionally, that America's 
biggest single business is that of education. There are in the schools of every 
variety of the United States approximately 1,000,000 teachers and 27,500,000 
students. Not all of these will obtain a full education, but those who do 
and the benefit derived by those who do not, will justify the business of 
general education. There are some 35,000 students in the Baptist schools of 
the South. Not all of these will obtain a full Christian education, but 
enough of them will, and the rest will be benefited enough to justify the 
business of our Baptist educational program. The highest product that the 
educational movement in America has produced is the Christian school. 
It is true that a student may go through a Christian school without obtain- 
ing a Christian education and some students in state schools do obtain a 
Christian education, but any school fails at the high task of Christian edu- 
cation if it sends out graduates who care nothing for the services of Christ 
and are agnostic in thought, deed and life. Baptists, by their traditions and 
fundamental principals should be best fitted to promote the highest type 
of Christian education. 

Respectfully submitted, 

C. S. Norville.

motion to adopt the question was discussed by Bro. Teague and 
adopted. 

STATE MISSIONS 

During the past century of their organized life North Carolina Baptists 
have wrought well and the smile of God's approval has been upon them. 
They have grown from a weak struggling band of a few thousands to 



22 Sixtieth Annual Session 

nearly 400,000 ; they have gone from extreme poverty to comparative riches ; 
and from almost no facilities for training their leadership to seven colleges 
in this State and three South-wide institutions. 

And yet our task of making North Carolina a great Baptist common- 
wealth is far from being complete. Reliable statistics reveal the fact that 
more than one-half of all the people in North Carolina are not even nomi- 
nal Christians. In other words, there are considerably more than a million 
people in this good State who do not claim Jesus Christ as Saviour and 
Lord and King. 

Since about 48 church members out of every 100 in this State are 
Baptists, that fact places a tremendous responsibility on us to be faithful 
and diligent in evangelizing this great multitude that is looking to us for 
religious influence and guidance. 

Our General Board is seeking to solve the mission problem in North 
Carolina through its 83 missionary pastors that are serving 165 churches, 
many of which could not have adequate pastoral service but for the timely 
aid of our Board. Approximately $32,500 of the $89,000 budget for State 
Missions was appropriated to this phase of the work this year. 

The Board is still further attacking its mission problem in this State 
through its Evangelistic Staff of three men; through its Sunday School 
Department with three regular field workers, three Associational workers 
and numerous volunteer workers in Associational Enlargement Campaigns; 
through its B. Y. P. U. Department with four regular field workers, three 
associational workers and volunteer workers in Associational Campaigns; 
through its W. M. U. Department with two regular workers in the field and 
other volunteer helpers ; and through the Preacher's School, work among 
students in our colleges, etc. 

Recommendations 

1. That each church in this Association put forth its best effort to win 
to Christ all the possibilities within its reach, and train its membership for 
the most effective service possible, utilizing such agencies of our General 
Board as may be necessary and available. 

2. That the stronger churches in this Association help the weaker ones 
to get on their feet, acting as a kind of big brother, giving counsel and 
leadership, and if necessary, more substantial help. We recommend that our 
Executive Committee deal with this matter in an organized way. 

3. That in the selection of the Executive Committee of this Association 
the different groups of our organizations, such as the Sunday School, 
W. M. S., and B. Y. P. U., be represented, and that the various sections of 
the Association be represented. 

4. That our churches co-operate with our General Board in solving our 
great mission problem at home and abroad, that they put on a thorough 
every-member canvass in November or December, that all our members be 
asked to contribute regularly, according to the Bible plan, to the Cooperative 
Program, and that our church treasurers be urged to forward promptly, 
at least once a month, such funds to Walters Durham, Treasurer, Raleigh. 

5. That we endorse the effort the General Board is putting on to raise 
$25,000 on State Mission Day in October through our Sunday Schools with 
which to wipe out the debt on State Missions.

36. Report on Home Missions was read by A. C. McCall, 
and adopted. 

REPORT ON HOME MISSIONS 

Can we truthfully say, as some have thought, that the day of home 
missions among Southern Baptists has passed? Instead of abandoning home 
mission work, we need to reorganize our home mission program along new 
lines to meet the new conditions that have arisen here, relieve the home 
mission board of the debts that are shackling it, and then provide it with the 
resources that will enable it to go out with a great staff of evangelists and 
missionaries, and win the Southland of ours for the Lord Jesus Christ. 
God has placed a great responsibility on Southern Baptists, such as is shared 
by no other religious group for the evangelization of not only this immediate 
section in which they live, but for a large section of the rest of the world 
as well. May we measure up to the privileges that are ours. 

In the present curtailment of the work of the Home Mission Board, it is 
impossible to give a commanding array of current achievements. The new 
secretary of the Home Mission Board, Dr. J. B. Lawrence, has as fine a 
grasp on the home mission opportunities and responsibilities of Southern 
Baptists, perhaps, as any man among us, and if our churches will rally to 
his support, as they ought, he will soon be able to relieve the bore of its 
debt that has hampered it in recent years, and revitalize it for the work 
before us on every hand. 

1. One-fourth of the population of the South are Negroes. The Home 
Board has only nineteen workers among them, and several of these are 
paid only partly by the Board. 

2. There are 500,000 Jews in the South and the Board employs only one 
evangelist. 

3. When the Board was organized the Indians furnished one of the chief 
incentives for its organization, and today we have only fifteen workers 
among 170,000. 

4. We have one worker among the 7,000 Chinese and Japanese. 

5. In Cuba, where the population is in round numbers three and a half 
million, we have nine American missionaries and forty-eight native workers. 

6. All told, the Home Mission Board missionaries are working among 
twenty-six nationalities who speak twenty-two languages. It is easily seen 
that the Home Board force is far from being adequate to meet the situation. 
The faithful men and women who are serving, and under great hardships 
that these foreign-speaking peoples may come to know the Lord Jesus 
Christ, are entitled to the prayers, sympathy and reinforcement of every 
member of every Baptist church.

37. Report on the Orphanage, prepared by C. L. Haywood, 
was read by the Clerk, and on motion to adopt, J. A. McMillan, 
pastor at the Mills Home, spoke on the report. Report was 
adopted. 

REPORT ON THE MILLS HOME 

"A little child shall lead them." Is not this true in the largest and fullest 
sense, as we think of the marvelous growth of the Mills Home at Thomas- 
ville. Certainly no object lies quite so hear the hearts of our great Baptist 
Brotherhood and deservedly so. What a great institution under the Grace of 
God it has grown to be. What a wonderful history it has and with greater 
things yet to come. 



24 Sixtieth Annual Session 

On Nov. 11, 1885, the first child was received. During the forty-four 
years of its continued growth nearly three thousand boys and girls have 
found a home and been given a chance to become useful men and women. 
Can you imagine what would have become of these children but for the 
protecting arm and sheltering care of the Home during their tender and 
more impressionable years. At the present time there are 620 in number, 
115 at the Kennedy Home and about 300 aided in their own homes in 
addition, receiving the consecrated attention and care and devotion of those 
in charge of the work. 

The Home has sent and is still sending its boys and girls into all voca- 
tions of life; some to preach the unsearchable riches of our Lord and 
Master; some to be professional and business men; some to become the 
makers of happy homes. In view of the ever increasing demands upon our 
orphanage, your committee urges and recommends that every Sunday School 
not already doing, designate a certain Sunday in each month to be known 
as Orphanage Sunday and that the collection be as large as possible on 
that day; that each Sunday School take as many copies of Charity and 
Children as possible and that our various Societies send useful gifts. 
Especialy do I most earnestly urge, as we near Thanksgiving, that we all 
have as our slogan, "At least one day's work or income for the orphanage." 
Again your committee urges that you give the Mills Home your heart's 
unfailing sympathy, your most earnest prayers and a liberal portion of 
your means. 

Let us ever bear in mind that — 

"He who gives a child a treat 
Makes joybells ring in Heaven's streets, 
And he who gives a child a home 
Builds palaces in Kingdom come." 
Respectfully submitted, 

C. L. Haywood, Committee. 
38. R. P. Ellington presented the report on Hospitals, pre- 
pared by A. J. Ellington. Report adopted. 

REPORT OF BAPTIST HOSPITAL 1929 

The Baptist Hospital at Winston-Salem was established May 29, 1923. 
During the six years of its existence over 12,000 patients have been treated — 
about 5,000 of these have been charity or semi-charity cases. Although 
unable to pay the price of first class hospital treatment, these 5,000 patients, 
mostly Baptists, have received the benefits of this Christian ministry. Surely 
the Baptist Hospital is approved by the Great Physician, who, Himself, 
went about administering to the poor and afflicted. 

For charity work $42,500 has been spent. Of this amount $15,500 came 
from the churches, $7,500 from the Duke Foundation, and $19,500 from the 
Hospital treasury. 

Last year there were 345 free and 1,053 part pay patients. Each year 
the charity cases increase. At least 1,500 will call on the Hospital for help 
during the next year. These 1,500 cases will cost about $50,000. Where will 
this money come from? About $15,000 is expected from Mother's Day 
proceeds in the churches, about $10,000 from the Duke Fund, and the bal- 
ance of $25,000 must come from the treasury of the Hospital unless other 
sources are found. The funds of the Hospital treasury are limited. The 
churches must increase their offerings on Mother's Day and private dona- 
tions must be solicited. Churches that have never donated a dollar must be 
aroused to their duty and wealthy Baptist friends must be approached. 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 25 

The new Nurses' Home was built at a cost of $47,500. One half of this 
amount was given by the good women of the State, $5,000 was donated by 
the Duke Foundation, and the balance solicited from friends and loaned 
from the operating account of the Hospital. The churches were not called 
upon to help pay for the Nurses' Home. 

In conclusion we would urge that every possible means be used to lay 
the Hospital on the hearts of the people. Plead with them to pray for its 
success, to contribute to its charity work by a Mother's Day offering, and 
as far as possible influence those who are able to pay for their care to go 
to our own Hospital that the funds they pay may help to care for the 
Hospital and enlarge its opportunity for serving the hundreds who go for 
treatment without money or price. 

We would further recommend that this association appoint a representa- 
tive to promote the interest of our Hospital among the churches and that 
the clerk be instructed to forward his name and address to Rev. G. T. 
Lumpkin, Winston-Salem, N. C.

On motion to adopt, the report was discussed by Roy A. Morris 
and adopted. 

REPORT ON STEWARDSHIP 
There are few more insistent problems than that of adequately financing 
the work of the Kingdom of God. Never in our history has there been 
such opportunity for advance along so many lines. The fields are white unto 
harvest at home and abroad. Laborers are available, especially for foreign 
service, if funds were available to send them. Worthy objects in the home- 
land are suffering terribly for lack of adequate support. Most of our churches 
are lacking in equipment; and far too little is spent for local expenses. 
There is a certain level of financial support that is necessary for best 
results; and we are not maintaining that level. The call of the hour is for 
enlargement on all lines. But we are withholding the necessary financial 
support. 



26 .Sixtieth Annual Session 

The faithful practice of stewardship by our people would supply money 
for all reasonable needs. Most churches could support half-time or full-time 
preaching, provide adequate building and equipment, finance a worthy local 
program, and contribute effectively to all kingdom objects by the simple 
methods of stewardship. Regular, proportionate, sacrificial giving would 
provide abundant funds for every helpful enterprise. 

A serious effort is now being made to enlist our people in the practice 
of stewardship. A hopeful sign lies in the fact that our young people are 
studying it in connection with their B. Y. P. U. course. Numerous books on 
this subject have appeared in recent years. The Association-wide campaign 
of the past few weeks has greatly helped. Doubtless this beginning will grow 
to greater effort and larger results. 

We beg to submit the following suggestions: 

1. That all pastors in the Mount Zion Association plan for the careful 
instruction of their people as to the needs, the duty, and the blessing of 
stewardship. 

2. That we express to the State Mission Board our appreciation of the 
work late done for the enlistment of our churches and that we request a 
continuance of such effort, if its continuance seems advisable. 

3. That stewardship classes be organized in churches, wherever practi- 
cable. 

4. That persons now practicing stewardship be urged to tell others of 
their methods and experience. 

5. That our people be urged to read some of the books now available. 
A partial list is the following: 

Burroughs: Our Lord and Ours. 
Burroughs: Our Church and Ours. 
Henderson: Financing a Church. 
Agar: The Stewardship of Life. 
Cooke: The Stewardship of Life. 
Cooke: Stewardship and Missions. 
Johnson: Stewardship Vitalized. 

Respectfully submitted,

53. On motion Trela D. Collins was requested to write the 
report on Foreign Missions. 

REPORT ON FOREIGN MISSIONS 

The work of the Foreign Mission Board has made steady advance during 
the past year. There have been many difficulties in the way, but through 
the favor of the Lord there have appeared many encouragements. 

The debt on the Board has been substantially decreased from $1,145,000 
to $802,506.88. This will be welcome news to the friends of Foreign Mis- 
sions. Further reduction will be made by applying ten per cent of all 
receipts upon the outstanding indebtedness. 

The following figures are very encouraging. Of the 1392 churches seven 
hundred and forty-four are self-supporting, and nine hundred and sixty own 
their houses of worship. Coupled with this is the fact that exclusive of 
salaries paid the missionaries, the native Christians put last year more money 
into the support of the native work than did the Board — $575,000 as against 
$540,000. They also baptized 12,264 converts, or a little over one thousand 
every month or thirty-three every day. 

In the realm of education good work is being done. 21,000 scholars 
were enrolled last year in the 486 schools. 100 of this number was assisted 
by the Board, the native Christians looking after the others. 

From all quarters of the earth more challenging opportunities are open- 
ing up. This is true in China, in Latin America, in Africa and all of Europe. 
All of these peoples are turning away from idols and autocracy, all of 
which spells unlimited opportunities for the Baptists. The question now 
is, not whether the fields are ripe and available, but whether the Baptist 
hosts will be aroused from their selfishness and enter into this glorious 
harvest. Certainly the love of Christ Jesus our Lord should constrain us 
to do our best in this glorious day of unusual promise. 

Respectfully submitted,

54. On motion Chas. F. Hudson was requested to write the 
report on Religious Periodicals. 

REPORT ON RELIGIOUS PERIODICALS 

There has not been time in the years of this generation when Baptists 
need to be as well informed as now. It would appear that our people are 
suffering with a paucity of knowledge as to the life and works of the 
denomination. This cannot be wholly remedied, but it can be partly 
redeemed, through an effort to have our people read constructive religious 
periodicals. 

Two things our religious periodicals must do for us: inform us; and 
inspire us. There should be a large place given to the presentation of facts 
relative to the programs and plans of extension of our denominational 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 29 

causes, with reports as to what has been already accomplished. These facts 
should be handled in a way that will be interesting and impressive. And 
our periodicals may be one great source of inspiration as in well written 
articles by careful, thoughtful writers our minds are turned upward. 

Baptists are accused of not being the most efficient possible. The reading 
of such periodicals as Church Administration, Church Management, Church 
Leadership is sure to be valuable. Every North Carolina Baptist should be 
interested in the Biblical Recorder. Home and Foreign Fields and Royal 
Service have their particular messages on missions. All specialized publica- 
tions of the Baptist Sunday School Board are helpful and valuable, espe- 
cially B. Y. P. U. Magazine, Baptist Student, Sunday School Builder, Young 
Peoples and Adults Magazine, and a score of others. Be intelligent Baptists 
by being reading Baptists. To this end read and strive. 

C. F. Hudson. 

55. Trela D. Collins reported that a called meeting of the 
newly elected Executive Committee was held during the lunch 
hour, and it was decided to hold the organization meeting of that 
committee Tuesday, October 22, 4:30 P. M., at the Watts Street 
Church, Durham. 

EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE MEETING 

At the meeting of the Executive Committee of the Mt. Zion Association 
held at the Watts Street Baptist Church, Durham, Tuesday, October 22, 
4:30 P. M., the following were elected officers: Chairman, C. S. Green; 
Secretary, John W. Dunaway. Trela D. Collins was elected Treasurer by the 
Association. 

The following members were noted as being present: W. M. Williams, 
W. O. Williams, T. D. Collins, I. D. S. Knight, F. E. Steed, W. A. Hinton, 
C. L. Upchurch, W. A. Young, J. E. Sharpe, M. W. Buck, E. I. Olive, 
C. S. Green, John W. Dunaway. 

After organization, the committee voted unanimously to approve the 
proposal of field work presented at the recent session of the Association, 
to proceed to secure a field worker, and outline the work of extension 
throughout the year. 

M. L. Jones, special worker in the Association for three months, was 
heard, and outlined the general field work idea. Following his talk the 
committee adopted a budget of $2,400.00 for field work for the year, 
Treasurer Collins reporting that practically that entire amount was already 
subscribed. It was noted that the Sunday School Board of the Southern 
Baptist Convention through the Baptist State Convention will pay half the 
salary and expenses of a field worker to an amount not to exceed $1,050.00. 

The officers of the committee were constituted to locate and employ 
such a full time field worker, and to make necessary arrangement for the 
proper handling of details related. They were given the authority to borrow 
amounts not to exceed $2,400.00 in the course of the associational year to 
finance the work, this amount representing the amount of pledges in view 
for the work. 

The meeting adjourned subject to the call of the chairman.

to which Mrs. G. E. Isaacs of Grace Church responded. The roll 



32 Sixtieth Annual Session 

call of societies was then made to which a large number responded. 
Reports of officers were made. These reports denoted growth, 
interest, and advancement. A conference on W. M. U. Methods, 
led by Mrs. J. P. Jones, was very instructive. The outstanding 
feature of the discussion was a splendid paper on "A Member's 
Duty to the W. M. S.," by Mrs. J. J. Hackney of Mt. Gilead. 

The address of the morning was given by Miss Alva Lawrence, 
Young People's Leader. Miss Lawrence spoke on W. M. U. and

A number of visitors were recognized and welcomed, including 
many pastors and visitors from Raleigh Association.

A conference for young people and leaders was led by Miss 
Alva Lawrence. Much interest was manifested. The afternoon ses- 
sion opened with song, "Come Women Wide Proclaim." Rev. A. 
C. McCall, of Lowe's Grove, conducted the devotional. 

The history of W. M. U. in Mt. Zion Association was read by 
Mrs. C. L. Haywood. A rising vote of thanks was given for this 
most complete work. 

Mrs. S. C. Weatherspoon led the memorial service in memory 
of those who had passed from our ranks during the year. This 
was followed by a lovely quartette by Olive Chapel Church.

REPORT OF YOUNG PEOPLE'S LEADER 

In coming to you with my report as leader of the Young People's Work, 
I am very conscious both of the great honor and the great responsibility 
that is mine. I have given this work and its advancement my first thought 
and consideration, hoping to make the results of my efforts worthy in the 
sight of my Master. 

The work for the past year has been most encouraging. In all our young 
people's societies, the Y. W. A., G. A., R. A., and Sunbeams, progress has 
been made, but for lack of time I will not attempt to give a detailed 
account. For this progress, however, I wish to give credit to whom it is 
due — first to our Leader and Guide, then to our own faithful Associational 
Superintendent and the co-workers in our Ruby Anniversary Committee. 

We have listed the following societies organized during the Ruby Anni- 
versary period: 

Y. W. A 6 

G. A 5 

R. A 5 

S. B 6 

Total 22 

Those organized since the close of the Ruby Anniversary are listed as 
follows:

We are happy to report twelve of our organizations listed in the Book 
of Remembrance. 

The following number of organizations are now listed on our records:

Letters written 443

Just as Moses was entrusted to his mother for a period of training, so 
our young people are entrusted to us for spiritual development. May we not 
fail God by failing to give our best to our new organizations and others that 
are struggling for existence.

REPORT OF STANDARD OF EXCELLENCE AND LITERATURE 
AND STEWARDSHIP CHAIRMAN 

We are very grateful to our heavenly father for the many blessings he 
has bestowed upon us during the past year, and for the privilege of being 
a co-worker with Him. In behalf of the W. M. U. of the Mount Zion 
Association, it is a joy to report something of the work being done that 
enables us to have a full graded W. M. U. As we all know, to have any 
A-l organization, we must fulfill all points on the Standard of Excellence. 
Last year we gained seven A-l organizations as follows: Bethesda and 
Chapel Hill W. M. S.; First Church and Temple Junior G. A.; Temple 
R. A. ; and Temple and Lowe's Grove Sunbeams. We now have twenty- 
seven A-l organizations, which is the greatest number of any association in 
the state. Nine societies have the full graded W. M. U., and are in line for 
the purple banner, while ten churches fall short of a complete W. M. U. 
by only one organization. Have you, in your church, a full graded W. M. 
U.? If not, NOW— TODAY— make that your goal for the year that is just 
beginning. Let today be new year's day with our leaders — the day of reso- 
lutions — and answer this question to our Master and Leader, "Wist ye not 
that I must be about my father's business?" 

Point five on our Standard of Excellence, I shall call by name because at 
this time it is our weak point ; namely, our denominational paper and maga- 
zines. I regret to state that this year our subscriptions were one hundred 



36 Sixtieth Annual Session 

and seventy-two less in number than in the preceding year. Instructive, 
interesting, loyal and stimulating, the leaders should spare no effort to see 
that this literature is in the hands of every member. To the Y. W. A. 
leaders in particular, I wish to recommend to you, your new publication, 
"The Window." Beginning September, it will carry the Y. W. A. programs, 
and many other delightful features. Let 1930 be the banner year for point 
five in every organization in our association, remembering that either two 
periodicals, or The Biblical Recorder and one periodical, is the subscription 
requirement. 

Salvation is more than freedom from the dominion of sin. It is a life 
to be lived, and thus, we become the stewards of God. If we give ourselves, 
naturally, we should give our time, our talents, and our money. And when 
Christian duty( so called) is considered Christian privilege, we will rejoice 
in every opportunity to give, and pray, and serve. During this year, our 
list of tithers has increased by 72, bringing the total of W. M. U. tithers to 
302. Let us remember Paul's authoritative words to the Corinthians, "He 
that soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he that soweth bounti- 
fully shall reap also bountifully. Let each man do according as he hath 
purposed in his heart; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a 
cheerful giver." 

Letters written, 40. 

Mrs. Geo. H. Ross, 
Standard of Excellence, Literature and Stewardship Chairman.

EXTRACTS FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORT 

This associational year has been one of marked progress in W. M. U. 
work. In the close of our Ruby Anniversary year a special effort was made 
to enlist all our churches in W. M. U. activities, the result being the addi- 
tion of 28 new societies in 1928. The Ruby Anniversary committee with 
Mrs. J. M. Whitted as chairman, was untiring in their efforts, not only in 
organizing but in strengthening the weaker societies. Many of our stronger 
societies, as well as individuals, rendered valuable aid by furnishing litera- 
ture and fostering these new organizations. The pastors also have encouraged 
and helped in many ways and has made the work easier. 

Your superintendent has endeavored to follow up the new work by 
visiting, helping in programs, and giving assistance wherever needed. The 
sacrificial service of many of our leaders is most remarkable, and the 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 37 

results have been very gratifying, not only in W. M. U. work but in 
community and church activities as well. They seem to fully realize what 
it means to be "Laborers Together With God," and are putting forth every 
effort to be worthy of that honor. 

One phase of the work that we are glad to report is the supporting of 
native Bible women by some of our societies. There are now nine being 
supported by the following societies: Ephesus W. M. S., one; West Durham 
W. M. S., one; and Chapel Hill, seven. This work is carried by special 
contributions in addition to amount given to Cooperative Program. 

Societies reaching all points for the book of Remembrance were W. M. 
S., Grace, Watts Street, Bethesda, and Temple; Y. W. A., Angier Avenue; 
G. A., Edgemont (Int.), Watts Street (Int.), Temple, and Jr. Durham First, 
Jr. R. A., Grace, Watts Street, Temple, and Durham First; Sunbeams, 
Temple and Watts Street. Number of members in societies making memorial 
gifts of $40.00 were Durham First, ten ; Watts Street, two ; and Temple, one. 

For the progress of the past let us be grateful, and as we begin this 
associational year may we resolve that if possible we will win each 
unenlisted church in Mt. Zion endeavoring to "Hold Forth the Words of 
Life." 

Statistical report: Visits to societies, 24; meetings attended, 12; letters 
and postals sent, 430; miles traveled, 1525; visits to individuals in the 
interest of the work, 38. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. J. L. Gates.

HISTORY OF WOMAN'S WORK IN MOUNT ZION ASSOCIATION 

Very early one beautiful spring morning some women went into Joseph's 
garden to annoint the body of one whom they loved. The body was not in 
the tomb; but the risen Saviour appeared to those women and said to them, 
"Go tell." Since then the women who love Jesus want the story told, and 
for this reason some other women banded themselves together into a 
Woman's Missionary Union, that through the giving of themselves in prayer 
and in gifts the story might be told throughout the whole world. A group 



38 Sixtieth Annual Session 

of these women out at Mt. Pisgah Church in the Mt. Zion Association felt 
this missionary zeal. There was planted just a little acorn, we might say, 
and from this beginning there has sprung up in Mt. Zion Association a 
mighty oak of missionary zeal among our women. Out under the trees 
years before, in 1845-6, a boy, Matthew T. Yates, had lived and been a 
member of that church. The prayers he uttered have brought forth fruit, 
and at Mt. Pisgah Church in 1886 was organized the first Woman's Mis- 
sionary Society in the Mt. Zion Association. Just about the same time a 
seed was also planted in a child's heart, for at the Chapel Hill Baptist 
Church Dr. B. Taylor, a young man, organized our first Sunbeam Band. 
It is said "A little child shall lead them," so from this little band other 
Sunbeam Bands were organized. The spark of missions in woman's heart 
began to grow there rapidly, and by 1891 at our first annual State meeting 
held in Goldsboro, the Mt. Zion reported the following societies and contri- 
butions: Mt. Pisgah, $40.70; First Church, Durham, $85.00; Second Church, 
Durham, $7.60; Sunbeam, Chapel Hill, $3.50; Bethel, $3.93; Mt. Moriah, 
35 cents; Berea, $11.95; Mt. Gilead, $7.76; box for Orphanage, Berea 
Church, $13.00. Among the new Sunbeam societies the Durham First Church 
was reported for the first time at Goldsboro. The amount sent in was $2.00. 
This society was organized by Mr. G. T. Bostick, who left the First Church 
and went as a missionary to China. The society was named the Adelaide 
Bostick Sunbeam Society, in honor of the wife of the pastor, Rev. G. T. 
Bostick. During the next few years the work in the Mt. Zion Association 
increased greatly. At that time missions were encouraged to be taught in our 
Sunday Schools, and offerings were sent in from various Sunday Schools. 

After this time more Sunbeam Bands and W. M. S. Societies were 
organized each year, and the women would meet each year with the Asso- 
ciation. As the work grew in the State, Miss Fannie E. S. Heck, who was 
our State President from the very beginning of woman's work, thought 
the time had come for each association to have a vice-president of woman's 
work. So the first vice-president to serve in the Mt. Zion Association was 
Mrs. Dr. Hume of Chapel Hill. The duties of the vice-president were to 
visit the societies and help in organizing new societies throughout the asso- 
ciation. Mrs. Hume served only two years. Then Mrs. Hugh P. Markham 
of Durham was elected and served very acceptably until her death in Feb- 
ruary, 1897. In the minutes of the Convention in Oxford in 1897 a beautiful 
tribute is paid to the loving and faithful vice-president who had been called 
to her heavenly home. In 1893 the first Christmas offering was made — called 
the Lottie Moore offering. 

In 1898 Mrs. L. W. Battle of Durham was elected vice-president of the 
Mt. Zion Association. At this time as in the past, the vice-presidents were 
elected by the central committee in Raleigh. Mrs. Battle was especially 
interested in Sunbeam work, and under her supervision many new Sunbeam 
bands were organized. 

In 1902 the State Convention met in Durham in our association, and all 
the women of the State met with the men. The woman's meeting was held 
in the beautiful Trinity Methodist Church. The fellowship was wonderful, 
and we deeply appreciated the genial hospitality of our sister denominations 
in entertaining the wonderful convention of men and women. At this time 
Mrs. O. B. Foushee, one of our charter members in the Association, wel- 
comed the women to our town and association. 

In 1902 Mrs. Hight C. Moore, of Raleigh, was elected vice-president and 
did a great work in stimulating the interest of women in missions. Mr. H. C. 
Moore was editor of the Biblical Recorder, and through its columns Mrs. 
Moore was able to do very effective work. Our first magazine for missions 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 39 

was called "Missionary Talk," and this was sent out to all organizations. 
About this time the societies began to send in reports to the vice-president. 
The association met with the Cane Creek Church that year. Mrs. C. M. V. 
Follett was appointed vice-president, and served very acceptably for our 
association until the State appointed her general organizer for the entire 
State. Mt. Zion gave her up reluctantly, but we were glad she could serve 
our State in the larger capacity, and felt grateful that Mt. Zion could thus 
contribute to the State at large. 

In 1904 Mrs. C. L. Haywood of Durham was elected vice-president at 
the meeting held at Cedar Fork Church. The central committee in Raleigh 
at their regular meeting voted to change the name from Vice-President to 
Superintendent of Associations. 

In 1905 at Swepsonville the women were called apart for the first time 
for a meeting in the Methodist Church. During that year the number of 
W. M. S. Societies grew to be twenty-three, and nine Sunbeam Bands 
reported. We contributed that year $1,383.67. Our motto for the year was 
"A missionary society in every church and every woman a member of a 
society." It was during the associational meeting that year, 1905, that the 
first report on Woman's Work was made to the association. This was done 
by the pastor of the First Baptist Church of Durham, Rev. C. J. Thompson, 
who was afterwards known as a real missionary pastor. 

It was in the year 1906 that the women out at Bethel Church raised 
our Ebenezer and really organized into a separate regular associational 
meeting. We met in a log school house, and overflowed the place. Some had 
to stand outside. So the branches of the big mission oak tree began to 
expand and we found we had three new branches of Y. W. A. and one R. A. 
chapter. 

In 1907 we met at Olive Chapel Church. Owing to the extreme illness 
of the Superintendent, the meeting was presided over by Mrs. C. J. Thomp- 
son. Mrs. H. C. Moore gave the devotional. The two-room academy was 
crowded for the meeting, and some were turned away. Special prayer was 
offered for the Superintendent. Mrs. W. M. Jones talked on woman's work. 

In 1908 we are meeting in Burlington, and the Superintendent, Mrs. 
Haywood, is able to be with us once again. We now begin our first period 
of enlistment. The leaves of the oak are again spreading, and Y. W. A.'s 
are especially emphasized. Mrs. W. C. Barrett makes a special plea for 
R. A. work. For the first time we have our much beloved State President, 
Miss Fannie Heck, with us and she spoke of the intellectual side of missions 
and the winning of our young people to missionary endeavors. Our gifts 
had increased to $2,563.86. 

1909 finds us up on Mars Hill, and the Sunbeams are gathering up the 
acorns and planting them, and our tree continues to grow. During these 
past years the women have met at the same time and place of the regular 
association. At this time it was decided to change for a year the time of 
meeting, as it was not always convenient to have two houses in which to 
meet. For the first time the Statistical Table and minutes of the W. M. S. 
were printed in the minutes of our Association. 

1910 — We find our women meeting with the Edgemont Church, and 
taking for their aim for the year $3,350.00 — quite an increase over the 
previous year. Miss Nellie Stephenson was elected as our Y. W. A. leader, 
and a special conference was held in our Y. W. A. work. Mrs. George Green 
from China spoke to us on China. 

1911 — The meeting is with Berea Church. In the absence of the Superin- 
tendent the Assistant Superintendent, Miss Corrinne Bowling, presides, and 
Mrs. J. W. Roach acts as Secretary. We find the usual interest — and Sun- 
beam work is emphasized. 



40 Sixtieth Annual Session 

191^- -We ascend Red Mountain, with our Superintendent with us 
again. The growth has been gradual, and we have twenty-two W. M. S. 
societies, four Sunbeam bands and three Y. W. A.'s and three R. A. bands, 
for our Jubilee year. 

1913 — Mebane is our meeting place. We have gained two W. M. S. 
societies, four Sunbeam bands and three Y. W. A.'s and three R. A. bands. 
Our mission oak is growing in strength. Twenty-one out of the twenty-two 
W. M. S. societies were present. Interest in all branches of the work is 
growing. We had a most interesting report from the Jubilate meeting held 
in St. Louis with our Southern Baptist Convention. This was given by Mrs. 
W. S. Olive of Olive Chapel Church. She thanked the women of Mt. Zion 
for making it possible for her to attend. This was a celebration of twenty- 
five years of woman's work in the South. Our motto then — "Past blessings 
are not earned rewards but a borrowed trust for the future." So we look 
forward to greater work ahead. The Sunbeams at Mebane gave us a beau- 
tiful demonstration of Sunbeam work. This was our banner Sunbeam Band 
for the year. Miss Blanche Barrus was with us; we felt deeply grateful for 
such a faithful corresponding secretary. 

1914 — Notwithstanding war cry was in the air, the women, ever faithful 
to their trust, wanted to continue the expansion of the limbs of the mighty 
oak. So we find the meeting in West Durham Church, and Mrs. J. J. Hurt 
acted as Secretary. Mrs. W. N. Jones, the efficient State Treasurer, brought 
us a message from our State work. We learned with deep regret of the 
extreme illness of our State President of W. M. U., Miss Fannie E. Heck. 
A special message of love and sympathy was sent to her in the Richmond 
hospital. Mrs. C. C. Smith brought us a message of our Jubilate meeting, 
and Mt. Zion pledged its part to the Judson Memorial Fund. A beautiful 
demonstration was given by the Sunbeams of West Durham. 

1915 — We have journeyed to East Durham, and our State Sunbeam 
leader, Miss Elizabeth Briggs, is with us; also the returned missionaries, 
Mr. and Mrs. D. W. Herring, brought us stirring messages right from our 
mission field in China. It was at this meeting we had our first reports from 
mission study circles. The meeting closed with a beautiful memorial service 
led by our Superintendent in memory of our much loved leader, Miss 
Fannie Heck, who had been called to her Heavenly home during the year. 

1916 — We have gone North this time, with the North Durham Church, 
and we find our missionary tree growing in many ways. A Missionary 
Library has been given by the First Baptist Missionary Society, and it is 
to be used throughout our association. Thus the seed of missions is con- 
stantly growing, and our W. M. S. societies number twenty-six, Y. W. A.'s 
fourteen, Sunbeams sixteen and R. A.'s three. 

1917 finds the women out at Yates Baptist Church — named for our first 
North Carolina missionary, Matthew T. Yates. It was a privilege to meet 
there for the first time. The meeting was a deeply spiritual one, and again 
we had Miss Elizabeth Briggs with us. All who know her realize she is a 
real Sunbeam leader, for the light seems to radiate from her very face. We 
take on new leaves, and the tree grows — and the women undertake to raise 
five hundred dollars more for the next year. 

1918 — We are worshipping in the Temple Church — surely built for the 
worship of God — and find our work has steadily increased. The most notable 
achievement of the past year was the establishment of two five hundred 
dollar memorials for the Church Building and Loan Fund, one by the 
women of West Durham to Mrs. T. C. Poe and one by the women and 
Y. W. A.'s of the First Church, Durham, to Miss Amanda Cheek. These 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 41 

memorials are to live and aid worthy churches in the years to come. Mrs. 
C. T. Willingham of Japan spoke to the women of her work there. We 
find now our tree has taken on a few more branches and we have thirty 
W. M. S. societies in the Mt. Zion. 

1919— We met at Edgemont Church. A fine report of the year is made 
by the Superintendent. One of our missionary societies — First Baptist of 
Durham — led the State in the gifts to missions, and we ran second in number 
of new organizations. A special scholarship was given to the Training School. 

1920 — We are meeting at Olive Chapel again, and find our work on the 
increase. The church is crowded. Mrs. C. C. Smith, our Y. W. A. leader, 
presided at the hour, and gave encouraging reports of the work. The Junior 
Y. W. A.'s are beginning to grow. Mrs. M. W. Buck, our Assistant Superin- 
tendent, gave a fine report of the Mobile School. 

We launch our campaign for the seventy-five million, and our Superin- 
tendent is made the key woman for our association. These key women are 
appointed in every Church. The missionary tree expands to all departments 
of the church work, and endeavors to work according to the plans worked 
out by our State for this great campaign. 

1921 — For the first time the women are meeting at Chapel Hill Church, 
where our first Sunbeam Society was organized. We are in the midst of 
our Seventy-five Million Campaign. The women are having a very active 
part in the Campaign. A Training School girl, Miss Grace Olive, gave us an 
interesting and helpful talk on Training School. Our Superintendent divided 
the associations into districts, and has a woman in each district to assist 
in this work. Our aim is very high, but the work is progressing. After 
seventeen years of service Mrs. Haywood finishes up her work as Superin- 
tendent, and becomes General Director of the Seventy-five Million Cam- 
paign. Mrs. M. W. Buck, of Burlington, Assistant Superintendent, is elected 
Superintendent of Mt. Zion. Appropriate resolutions of appreciation of 
service for seventeen years of work were drawn up and one copy sent to 
Mrs. Haywood and one recorded in the minutes. Mr. Wade D. Bostick, 
returned missionary from China, made a great address. 

1922 — We meet again at Yates Baptist Church with our new Superin- 
tendent, Mrs. Buck, presiding. Our sturdy oak tree is holding her own, and 
the gifts for the Seventy-five Million Campaign are coming in. We now 
have eighteen Sunbeam bands, and our interest in mission study continues 
to grow. We are reaching out for standard societies, and our Superintendent 
emphasized reporting promptly. Mrs. Buck reported for the work done by 
the executive committee during the year. The men of the Mt. Zion had been 
asked for help in financing the women's work, so their committee voted one 
hundred dollars to help in the work for the year. A two bed room was 
reserved for our association at the Baptist Hospital in Winston-Salem. The 
amount sent in was three hundred and seventy-five dollars. 

1923 — We meet in Burlington, the home church of our Superintendent. 
A beautiful pageant on mission study was given, and the training school 
scholarship of our Association was given to Miss Mozelle Breeze. The 
chart of the W. M. U. in our Association was presented by the Superin- 
tendent. Banners for mission study were awarded for the first time, and 
our great missionary tree continues to expand. The banner for the State 
work was awarded Mt. Zion at the State meeting in Durham. 

1924 — We meet with the Edgemont Church. All officers present except 
our mission study leader, Mrs. A. C. Howell, who was quite sick at her 
home. A very helpful message was given by Miss Nellie Page, one of our 
scholarship girls from our Southern Baptist Convention. We had seven 
training school girls present. We had with us for the first time our new 



42 Sixtieth Annual Session 

State Leader of young people's work, Miss Dorothy Kellam, who spoke on 
"The Way, the How and the Why" of young people's work. For the first 
time the Sunbonnet Baby visited our Association, making an interesting 
study for a part of our sturdy oak tree. At this meeting Mrs. Samuel J. 
Porter was elected Superintendent. Appropriate resolutions were passed 
upon the faithful service Mrs. Buck had rendered during her three years 
of service. 

1925 — Our faithful and sturdy oak is continuing to grow, but the wind 
has been blowing hard through the early part of the year. Some of our 
leaders have been transferred to other fields of labor. Mrs. Porter, who 
served six months as Superintendent, has moved with her good husband 
to Washington, D. C. Our assistant superintendent, Mrs. Brinson, has been 
quite sick, and our elected superintendent by the executive committee, Mrs. 
J. M. Cheek, makes her report briefly of the achievements of the year, 
having served since May. Miss Mary Kennedy, Educational Director of the 
First Baptist Church, gave a splendid talk on young people's work. 

1926 — At Antioch we "meet with Mrs. J. M. Cheek, Superintendent, 
presiding. Twenty of our churches were represented. Our new corresponding 
secretary, Miss Harris, gave us an inspiring address, "Launch Out." We had 
no applications for our training school scholarship, but a beautiful message 
was brought by one of our scholarship girls, Miss Nellie Page. The banners 
were awarded for mission study. The beautiful memorial service for our 
former superintendent, Mrs. M. W. Buck, was conducted by Mrs. John 
Vernon, of Burlington. 

1927 — We meet with Mt. Gilead. The missionary tree continues to grow, 
and we have in the Mt. Zion Association three new societies for the year. 
We had with us a missionary, Miss Opie Fleta from Central America. Mrs. 
D. E. Ward had charge of the young people hour, and good reports were 
given of G. A. camp. The Centennial Campaign for our schools was 
announced and explained. 

Ruby Anniversary Year 

1928 — The meeting is with Grace Baptist Church. Twenty-two churches 
were represented. Our faithful superintendent, Mrs. Cheek, presided. A very 
interesting report was made of the Ruby Anniversary Campaign by Mrs. 
Pope. The most gratifying report we have had on mission study was given 
by the leader, Mrs. J. M. Whitted. 

The Centennial Campaign for our schools will continue under the 
director, and every church is to have a part in our Christian Education of 
young people. 

The Mt. Zion had during 1927 three standard societies, and 1928 two 
standard A-l societies. Mrs. J. M. Cheek refused to serve longer as 
superintendent. The association gave a rising vote of thanks to her for her 
very faithful and efficient service during the past four and a half years. 
Mrs. J. L. Gates, of Temple Church, was unanimously elected Superintend- 
ent, and Miss Tingen, assistant superintendent. Many have been the faithful 
workers during these years — all giving aid and helping our mission tree to 
grow and remain healthy and strong. Especial mention should be made 
of the work among our faithful young people leaders who have served 
through the years: Mrs. J. W. Wildman, Mrs. C. C. Smith, Mrs. Walter 
Williams, Mrs. E. L. Baskin, Mrs. W. M. Upchurch, Mrs. Hubert Warren, 
Miss Myra Olive, Mrs. D. E. Ward, Mrs. J. Tingen, Mrs. J. O. Spoon, and 
Miss Nellie Page. Other officers have done faithful work. The great tree of 
missions is depending on its young branches to put out new leaves and thus 
keep it ever ready for service in the Master's vineyard.

Sixty-first Annual Session 



CONSTITUTION 



Article 1. This body shall be known as the Mount Zion Baptist 
Association of North Carolina. 

Membership 

Art. 2. It shall be composed of the ordained ministers, belonging to, 
and members chosen annually by, the several churches belonging to this 
body, who, by presenting letters from their respective churches, certify 
their appointment, and shall thereby be entitled to seats. Each church 
shall thereby be entitled to three delegates, and one additional delegate 
from each Sabbath School connected with the church, who shall be a 
member of some Baptist Church. 

Objects 

Art. 3. The objects shall be to devise and recommend measures for 
increasing the harmony, the intelligence and the spiritual power of the 
churches, and for developing and directing their energies, their resources 
and their gifts, in advancing the Redeemer's kingdom in the earth. This 
association shall be an auxiliary to the Baptist State Convention in all 
educational, mission, Sabbath School, and other work fostered by its 
boards. 

Powers and Prerogatives 

Art. 4. The members thus convened shall sit as an advisory council, 
who shall have no power to infringe on any of the internal rights of the 
churches. It may advise the churches, and recommend measures of use- 
fulness for their adoption, but cannot bind them in any way. Yet, in 
view of the combined wisdom, piety and intelligence of the body, it may 
justly claim 1 for itself, for its objects, and for its recommendations the 
very highest consideration and regard. 

Art. 5. The Association shall have power to withdraw from any 
church that shall knowingly or wilfully depart from the orthodox prin- 
ciples of the religion as taught in the Bible and held by the regular 
Baptists as the true teachings thereof. 

Rights of Churches 

Art. 6. Baptist churches on application for admission to this body 
shall be received and their delegates seated, if necessary evidence is given 
that they are truly of our faith and order. 

Art. 7. It shall be the duty of the association when requested by 
aggrieved members to hear their grievances, give appropriate advice, or 
send committees to aid them in their difficulties. If the minority of the 
church is aggrieved with the majority, upon application they shall be 
entitled to the same consideration. Individual applications will not be 
entertained. 

Duties of Churches 

Art. 8. It shall be the duty of the churches to appoint as delegates, 
as far as practical, their most capable members, to insist upon their at- 
tendance, and to send by them a contribution to the Association Treasurer 
to pay for the printing of the minutes and other necessary expenses. 

Art. 9. It shall be the duty of each church to send annually a letter to 
the Association giving : 1. Location ; 2. Names of pastor, clerk, and other 
general officers and their respective post offices ; 3. Sabbaths of regular 
worship; 4. Church statistics, with the number baptized, received by 
letter, restored, dismissed by letter, excluded, erased, or died during the 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 9 

past year; the total number in fellowship; 5. Statement of the finances 
of the church showing all amounts paid to local expenses and benevolent 
objects ; 6. Sunday school statistics ; 7. Records of other church organiza- 
tions; 8. Names of delegates and alternates; 9. Any other information 
deemed of special importance or necessary for publication, as required on 
the blanks in immediate use. 

Organization 

Art. 10. (1) The officers of the Association shall be a Moderator, 
Vice-Moderator, Clerk, Treasurer, Auditor, Historian, who shall be 
elected at each annual session after the names of the delegates are en- 
rolled, and shall continue in office until the next annual session. Election 
shall be by acclamation when only one candidate is nominated, but by 
ballot when more than one candidate is nominated for any one office. 
Any officer may be reelected. 

(2) An executive committee shall be elected annually to serve until 
the next meeting of the Association. 

The committee shall consist of the following: Moderator, Clerk, 
Treasurer, and presidents of the Sunday School, B. Y. P. U., and W. M. 
U. organizations of the association, by virtue of their offices ; and eight 
other members at least one of whom shall be a woman — nominated by a 
special committee on nominations, but elected by the association. Nine 
shall constitute a quorum for the committee. 

It shall be the duty of this committee to cooperate with the Baptist 
State Convention and the churches of the association in whatever efforts 
seem wise for the advancement of Christ's kingdom, and they shall take 
any steps necessary to put in successful operation any plans adopted by 
the association. 

The committee shall be called in session the second Tuesday in each 
quarter, i. e., the second Tuesday in January, April, July, and October, 
unless there is sufficient reason for a change in date. After a separate 
session the committee shall bring its recommendation before the min- 
ister's conference of the association for discussion and suggestion. 

Duties of Officers 

Art. 11. It shall be the duty of the Moderator to open the meeting 
punctually at the time appointed, to enforce the rules, to preserve order, 
and to exercise all the prerogatives of a presiding officer according to the 
principles of established parliamentary usage. 

Art. 12. It shall be the duty of the Vice-Moderator to discharge the 
duties of the Moderator in his absence. 

Art. 13. It shall be the duty of the Clerk to keep a faithful record of 
the proceedings of the Association; to superintend the printing and dis- 
tribution of the same; and to keep on file the printed minutes and other 
important documents belonging to the body. The distribution shall be 
based on the comparative amount paid by each church to the minute fund. 
For his services the Clerk shall be paid fifty ($50.00) dollars out of the 
Minute Fund. 

Art. 14. It shall be the duty of the Treasurer to receive and pay over 
to the proper parties all the money contributed direct to the Association 
by the churches, and make an annual report to the Association. 

Art. 15. It shall be the duty of the Auditor to annually examine the 
Treasurer's books and attest the report.

Ileal Recorder; Secretary, Chas. E. Maddry; I. M. Mercer, 
Meredith College. 

10. Report on Biblical Recorder was read by W. G. Hall. 
It was discussed by B. G. Early and adopted. 

REPORT ON BIBLICAL RECORDER 

For the past ninety-six years the Recorder has served as the organ 
of the Baptists of North Carolina. It brings into your home each week 
the best thought of the best thinkers among our people. It has special 
pages for our young people's work, and the Sunday School, and the 
W. M. U., so that we may keep in touch with what is going on in our 
churches over the state. 

People are largely influenced by what they read.. The Recorder 
brings the best of thought and influence to the home circle. The best 
is none too good for our Baptist homes. The Recorder should be in 
every Baptist home. The father and mother should provide spiritual 
food for the home as much so as they provide temporal food. The 
Recorder costs only $2.00 per year. Never before was there a time 
when our boys and girls stood more in need of pure literature which 
will instill high ideals, create a desire for pure living, and stimulate 
them to render unselfish service, than now. 

We should subscribe for it today, and read it next week. 
Respectfully, 

W. G. Hall. 

11. Report on Missions: State, Home and Foreign, was 
read by W. K. McGee, and discussed by Chas. E. Maddry and 
adopted. 

REPORT ON MISSIONS 

State Missions 

North Carolina Baptists are this year completing one hundred years 
of organized effort. At the very beginning our fathers made plans for 
evangelizing North Carolina. If the record of these one hundred years 
were examined, it would be found that many of our strong and generous 
churches in the leading towns and centers of the state were organized 
and planted through the sacrificial labors of faithful state missionaries. 

Sometimes we hear the idea advanced that soon we will have finished 
the job of State Missions and that all the needy and promising fields 
will be occupied. But with the ever changing conditions and the rapid 
growth of the state in industrialism, in good roads, in public education, 
in the rapid shift of the population from the country to the town and city, 
there come with every new generation new opportunities and new re- 
sponsibilities for evangelizing and saving our own people. 

In the percentage division of our cooperative funds, State Missions 
receives twenty cents out of the dollar. In addition to this, all funds 
given through the Sunday Schools on State Mission Day, the last Sun- 
day in October, go to State Missions as an extra amount. 

This year there are eighty-four missionaries in the employ of the 
Board, serving about one hundred and fifty churches. The Board is 
caring for the Sunday School, W. M. U., B. Y. P. U., and Student Work. 
This year we took the work among the Indians in Robeson County and 
the Cherokees in Swain County. 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 13 



The task is greater and the need is more imperative today than when 
our fathers began the work one hundred years ago. We hope every 
pastor will preach on State Missions during October, which is State 
Mission month throughout the South, and that every Sunday School will 
put on the State Mission program the last Sunday in October. Our 
Board is heavily handicapped with a debt, and every churchy and Sunday 
School is urged to have a worthy part in this great state-wide effort to 
lift the burden from our State Mission work. 

Home Missions 

Home Missions might be defined as that group of missionary and 
evangelistic tasks which, either because of their nature or their size 
and difficulty, can best be done by a South wide agency. 

The Home Mission Board is the Southwide agency through which 
Southern Baptists are doing their Home Mission work. The field of 
operation for this Board is the territory of the Southern Baptist Con- 
vention, the four Western Provinces of Cuba, and the Canal Zone. 

The work is divided into the following departments: Direct and 
Independent Missions, including work among the Foreigners, Indians, 
Negroes, and City Mission work, with Dr. J. W. Beagle as Superin- 
tendent; Mountain Missions and Schools including evangelism, indus- 
trial centers and mountain schools, with Dr. J. W. O'Hara as Superin- 
tendent ; Mission work in Cuba with Dr. M. N. McCall as Superintendent ; 
Mission work in Panama, Canal Zone, with Stephen Witt as Superin- 
tendent ; Missions to the Jews with Rev. Jacob Gartenhaus as Mission- 
ary; Mission Study with Mrs. Una Roberts Lawrence as Director; W. 
M. U. Field work with Miss Emma Leachman as Field Worker; 
Church Building Loan Department with the Executive Secretary, Dr. 
J. B. Lawrence, as Superintendent, and Rev. Geo. F. Austin as Field 
Representative. 

The work for the ensuing year was laid out as instructed by the 
Convention on the basis of the cash receipts of the previous year. These 
receipts were $407,357.58 on the Cooperative Program and $32,397.18 
supplemental receipts, making a total of $439,754.76. 

The Board set aside $250,000 to be paid on interest and principal of 
the debt. This necessitated some reduction in Mission work, but by 
combining forces and consolidating mission stations, the Board is able 
to hold all of its fields intact, though with reduced personnel. 

The budget as fixed for this year totals $434,357.75. 

The Board has set itself definitely to the task of paying its debts, 
with the determination that when once out of debt, it will absolutely 
stay out of debt. Since September, 1928, it has paid in interest and 
principal on its indebtedness $713,987.57. The reduction of the debt, 
however, is being made with the least possible inroads upon the Mission 
work. The minimum amount that can be paid on interest and principal 
of the debt has been set aside as a fixed item in the budget of appropri- 
ations. Therefore any increase in contributions will mean an increase in 
Mission work. 

Last year we had 168 workers and they baptized 2,219 people. This 
was 13 baptisms per worker. When we remember that a great deal of 
this work is with very difficult groups like foreigners here in our midst, 
in Cuba and Panama, who have a background of Catholic teaching, this 
compares favorably with any Mission work that our Baptist people are 
doing. 

Our people need to recognize the tremendous importance just now of 



14 Sixty-first Annual Session 

our Home Missions work. This new day of industrialization is giving 
to us a new set of Mission problems. Cities are growing very rapidly. 
Industrial communities are springing up almost over night. The tide of 
immigration is turning toward the South. All of these things create a 
real need for Home Missions. Our task is to mobilize our home forces 
for world-conquest for Christ, and our Home Mission work has a big 
place in this mobilization process. 

Foreign Missions 

The blessing of God has been upon our work in foreign lands. While 
there have been many difficulties, yet through the help of the Lord there 
have been many encouragements. 

Good progress has been made toward the further reduction of the 
debt which has burdened the Board. The debt was reduced $187,423.56 
during the year closing May 1, 1930. 

The plan for reducing the debt is to apply 10 per cent of all receipts 
from the Cooperative Program, all special gifts made for this specific 
purpose, and all moneys received from the sale of properties owned by 
the Board which are not now being used for mission purposes. 

On the foreign field there are 1,407 churches with a membership of 
161,059. The native contributions amounted to $472,820.12. 

Southern Baptists should catch the inspiration of the throbbing life 
of the work in foreign lands. The past year has been marked by great 
revivals in many fields. Thirteen thousand, two hundred and fifty bap- 
tisms were reported, a thousand more than have ever been reported in a 
single year. Progress along all lines has been made in all missions. 
The power of the gospel has been demonstrated everywhere. 

In Africa there were thirty requests for the eight graduates from 
the Theological Training School last June. There was a great revival 
in the Lagos School which resulted in the conversion of over one hun- 
dred students in the upper grades. The hospital and college at Ogbom- 
oso had the greatest year in their history. The Nigerian Baptist Con- 
vention made fine progress. It has now 200 churches in its member- 
ship practically all of which are self-supporting. 

In Argentina there are 59 churches with 4,059 members. These 
churches gave last year a total of $41,083.00. There were 380 baptisms. 
The Publishing House prospers. It published 1,520,000 pages of tracts. 

In North Brazil the work has grown from 120 churches with 6,203 
members to 149 churches with 8,348 members in the last decade. Ten 
years ago there were 215 baptisms during the year ; last year there were 
876. The religious life in the schools was strong during the year. There 
were 510 students in the College and Seminary at Pernambuco. 

In South Brazil : 1930 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the opening 
of Baptist work in Brazil. Dr. and Mrs. W. B. Bagby were the first 
missionaries. They are still active in the service. One of the greatest 
revivals ever conducted in Brazil was held during the year in Rio Col- 
lege. One hundred and fifty made profession of conversion. 

Chile is the newest field the Foreign Board has entered in Latin 
America. There were special evangelistic meetings held in every church 
in the country with fine results. 

In Central China the Soochow field had the most encouraging year 
it has ever experienced. At Shanghai splendid meetings were held in 
the North Gate School and church. Twenty-three were baptized. In 
Grace Church there were 41 baptisms. At the Pao-shing Road Com- 
pound center the Ming Jang Boys' School enrolled 248 students and the 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 15 

Eliza Yates Girls' School enrolled 240. A revival was held in this 
center in which 97 were baptized. At the opening service of this revival 
20 were baptized. 

In interior China, which was torn by war, one new church was organ- 
ized and two others are waiting to be when the missionary can get to 
them. The six churches in and around Chengchow formed themselves 
into a Baptist Association. The Boys' School and the Girls' School at 
Kaifeng had a good year. The Boys' School is the only school of any 
denomination in operation in the whole Province of Honan. 

In North China on account of the warring conditions, the number of 
students was reduced, but the work was good and there were many 
conversions among students. Hospitals were interfered with, but helped 
soldiers. 

in South China there were about 600 baptisms. Pooi-To Girls' 
School celebrated its fortieth anniversary by the opening of a new build- 
ing which cost $40,000.00. This building was given entirely by the 
Chinese. 

In Hungary the Baptists have grown in ten years from 7,000 to 
12,000 members. They baptized last year 763. 

In Italy, 1929 was the best year in the Italian Mission work. There 
were 294 baptisms, an increase of 49 per cent. There was a 30 per cent 
increase in the amount contributed to the support of the work. 

In Japan, the Publishing House had a record year. It published 
1,750,000 tracts and 250,000 books. There were 700 students in Sei-nan 
Ga-kuin, the boys' school at Fuku-oka. There were forty baptisms 
among the students. The Girls' School at Ko-kura had 400 students. 
There were 67 converts among the student body during the year. 

In Jugo Slavia three new chapels were added during the year. The 
Baptists have grown from 600 in 1922 to 1,148. 

In Mexico, the Seminary at Monter-rey had 14 students, 3 in gradu- 
ating class. The Girls' School at Chi-hua-hua, and the school at Culi- 
acan were disturbed somewhat by the revolution, but were able to carry 
out a successful year's work. A chapel building was erected at Ro-sita 
through the aid of the Sarah Hale Church Building Loan Fund. 

The building for the Woman's Training School in Bucharest, Rou- 
mania, is so nearly completed that it was possible to use the building 
during the latter part of the year for the opening of the school. There 
were 4,925 baptisms in Roumania. This is the largest number ever re- 
ported to our Foreign Mission Board from any one of its fields. 

In Spain the Spanish Baptist Convention was organized at Barcelona. 
The Spanish Baptists are beginning to realize their responsibility toward 
evangelizing their own country. They had 107 baptisms. 

Thus reads, like added pages of the Acts of the Apostles, the story 
of our work in foreign lands. Out among the countless hosts of lost 
men our Father has set his seal of approval and blessing upon the 
labors of our missionary messengers. He has kept His promise to be 
with those who GO. The needs of the unredeemed world, the com- 
mand of our divine Saviour, the favor of our Heavenly Father mar- 
velously manifested upon our labors in all fields, should speak with 
irresistible force to Mt. Zion Baptists "that they go forward." 

There are a few significant facts, to which one would call attention, 
regarding gifts from the churches of Mt. Zion Association to our Co- 
operative Program. During the first three quarters of 1930, ending Sep- 
tember 30, the close of our Associational year, 21 churches have given 
less than one-half the amount they gave during the whole year of 1929. 



16 Sixty-first Annual Session 

Four churches have given less than one-fourth the amount they gave in 
1929. On the other hand, nine churches, namely, Cane Creek, Carrboro, 
Glen Hope, Moore's Chapel, Mt. Vernon, Olive Branch, Red Mountain, 
Swepsonville, and West Durham, have given more in these three quar- 
ters than they gave during the entire year of 1929; and Graham and 
Temple have given almost as much as they gave in that year. During 
these three quarters, all churches of the Association have contributed 
$15,086.51, as compared with a total of $25,476.03 for the year 1929. 
In other words, if Mt. Zion Association contributes as much to the Co- 
operative Program in 1930 as she did in 1929, she must give $10,389.52 
between now and January 1, 1931. To accomplish this, it will require 
true loyalty on the part of all the churches. 

Respectfully submitted, 

W. K. McGee. 

12. Report on Christian Education. L. E. M. Freeman 
being absent, the report was read and discussed by I. M. Mer- 
cer and adopted. 

REPORT ON CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

Baptists need to understand the present need of Christian Education. 
In the earlier days we founded schools to educate our preachers. This 
step was a wise one ; and our great progress as a denomination has 
come largely as a result of it. At first, Christian colleges met a press- 
ing need in the field of education. There were no other schools of like 
grade. Hence the field was open for them. In recent years, however, 
state supported educational institutions have developed so that educational 
advantages are in reach of all. This being true, many persons do not 
see clearly the need of distinctively Christian schools. 

Of course, the training of pastors, missionaries and other Christian 
workers must continue; and if our schools did only this, their service 
would still be of incalculable value. Even in that case, we could not 
afford to give up our schools or to suffer them to become inefficient. 

We must not forget the splendid service of our schools in giving us 
great numbers of young people for leadership in our churches. They 
bring new life to the various church organizations because of their con- 
tacts during their school work. The importance of this service from 
Christian schools cannot easily be overestimated. 

There is another consideration that should be pondered well before 
we allow our schools to be further crippled. It is the fact that society 
as a whole needs the saving factor of Christian influence in education. 
Much of present moral and philosophical thought is avowedly pagan, and 
more is not openly, but none the less really so. Many brilliant writers 
are brazenly anti-Christian. They frankly set out to destroy the Chris- 
tian code of morals and social institutions based on the conception of 
divine authority. And these pagan thinkers find a most fruitful field 
of influence in non-Christian schools. A thoughtful writer states in a 
recent book that it is difficult to find a group of advanced graduate stu- 
dents a majority of whom believe in God or personal immortality. Edu- 
cation as such gives no guarantee of human welfare and continued 
progress. The mighty problems confronting our own nation and the 
whole race of men can be solved only by the principles of Jesus Christ. 
And these principles must influence education in order to counteract the 
various substitutes for God and the gospel that are being proposed. Our 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 17 

task is not merely to advance denominational interests, but to do our 
part in bringing the principles of Christ to bear on the entire social 
order to prevent its ruin. Educated leaders will always have influence. 
Educated leaders who are Christians will become a saving force. 

The Southern Baptist Convention controls three schools for training 
leaders: the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary; the Southwestern 
Baptist Theological Seminary, and the Baptist Bible Institute. The 
Woman's Missionary Union controls the W. M. U. Training School. 
Last year 1,107 students were enrolled in these schools. 

The various state conventions, associations and other Baptist bodies 
control 31 senior colleges, 30 junior colleges and 31 academies. Last 
year these had 27,362 students, 1,344 of these being ministerial students. 

All these schools are handicapped by lack of adequate equipment and 
sufficient endowment. The receipts for the cooperative program have 
steadily fallen in the past five years. Our schools have suffered in pro- 
portion to the decline in gifts. In North Carolina, especially, the need 
is pressing. A major objective for North Carolina Baptists should be 
the removal of the debts that now hamper our work in the field of edu- 
cation and the building up of an adequate endowment for our schools. 
We certainly cannot afford to suffer our schools to fail in their great 
and God-given tasks. 

A recent pamphlet from the Educational Commission of the Southern 
Baptist Convention has the following: "It is not necessary or wise that 
Baptist schools seek to compete with the large program of the state 
system. But let us maintain relatively small but efficient Christian 
schools that put the Christian content in education. Thereby we will 
furnish a large proportion of the leaders of tomorrow. Some researches 
in Who's Who in America, made by a state university professor some 
years ago, show that, while non-denominational schools represented in the 
volume had four times the number of students, the denominational schools 
had twice as many representatives listed. This suggests that the em- 
phasis upon the religious content in education tends to produce leader- 
ship. Let us hold to the emphasis." 

Respectfully submitted,

REPORT OF C. S. GREEN, CHAIRMAN, OF THE WORK OF THE 

EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE, FOR THE ASSOCIATIONAL 

YEAR, 1930 

After twelve months of organized and concentrated effort the execu- 
tive committee comes to report a year that has been happily and fruit- 
fully spent in Kingdom interest. Conforming to the set-up arranged 
and adopted by the Association at its 1929 meeting, the committee met 
by agreement, October 22, at the Watts Street Baptist Church, Durham, 
and perfected its organization. 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 19 

The first item to claim the attention of the committee was the matter 
of field work. After a thorough and prayerful consideration, it was 
decided that the field work recommended by the Association be under- 
taken, and a budget of $2,500 was adopted for this work. M. L. Jones, 
former field worker of the Pilot Mountain Association, who had been 
doing some special work among the churches of the Association during 
the preceding two months, was invited to become field worker, and he 
immediately took up his duties. These he has performed to the delight 
and satisfaction of all, with results that are marked and conspicuous, 
and beyond the expectations of the committee. 

The committee was organized along the general lines of the Baptist 
work of the state, four sub-committees being formed. These were : 
Missions, M. W. Buck, Chm., J. E. Sharpe, W. M. Williams ; Education, 
E. I. Olive, Chmn., W. A. Hinton, W. A. Young; Benevolences, W. O. 
Williams, Chm., C L. Upchurch, F. E. Steed ; Training Activities, I. D. 
S. Knight, Chm., T. D. Collins, C. S. Green, C. R. Pittard, W. J. 
Broadwell. 

Looking to a three-year program of concentrated effort throughout 
the Association in cooperation with the state missions offices in Raleigh, 
objectives and avenues of possible service were outlined for each of 
these committees, and reports at the last meeting of the committee 
showed that although not all has been accomplished that had been 
hoped, real progress has been made, and that the individual committees 
have been of vital service during the year. 

Especially conspicuous has been the work of the committees on Edu- 
cation and Training Activities. Under the direction of Brother Olive 
details for the observance in every church in the Association of Fellow- 
ship Week — October 26-November 2 — have been worked out. This is to 
worthily recognize the centennial year of organized Baptist work in the 
state, and to assist in final collections of the subscriptions to the recent. 
Centennial Campaign for our schools and colleges. The Training Activi- 
ties Committee under Brother Knight has been constantly in touch with 
the field work of Brother Jones, offering counsel all along the way, andi 
most recently actively promoting a survey of the Association to deter- 
mine the advisability of continuing this phase of the work. 

Since other reports will deal specifically with the field work, withi 
B. Y. P. U., Sunday School, and W. M. U. — it remains within the 
province of this report to call attention to only general and yet important: 
matters. 

First of these is the splendid spirit of cooperation that has marked! 
all efforts during the year with pastors and church leaders alike. It has. 
been a paramount desire that the pastor be always recognized as the 
leader of his congregation, and his cooperation has been solicited first- 
This has been unanimously accorded. 

Second, there has been a general toning up of interest among prac- 
tically all of the churches in the entire program of the denomination. 
No figures are available, yet it is believed that actual numerical increases 
will be noted along many lines. There is being, developed a denomina- 
tional consciousness that is calculated to bear untold fruitage. 

Third, all of the auxiliaries of the Association, with their separate 
organizations have cooperated fully, and the programs have been blended 
for mutual enhancement of the cause. 

Fourth, the state denominational leaders have given their support to 
our work in an unselfish way. One-half of the salary and traveling 
expenses of our field worker has been paid by the Baptist Sunday 



20 Sixty-first Annual Session 

School Board of the Southern Baptist Convention upon recommendation 
of our state secretary. This has been assured the Association for an- 
other year. 

Fifth, the only real difficulty of the year has been the matter of 
finances. Plans are being developed that will eradicate these difficulties, 
if the churches will lend their equal support to the program. 

Sixth, recent group conferences held throughout the territory of the 
Association have been attended by the leaders in nearly all the churches. 
The interest at these meetings is indicative of the revivified interest to 
which reference has been made. A note of optimism is being sounded 
throughout, and the Association seems ready to go ahead toward greater 
and more worthy accomplishments. 

C. S. Green, 
Chairman Executive Committee. 

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

Southern Baptists and Christian people everywhere will be wise if 
they have proper regard for the teaching function of the church. The 
greatest opportunity before the church is the child; the greatest field of 
service is in teaching and winning to Christ the unsaved child. The 
whole church, therefore, ought to be engaged in doing its greatest work. 
And the whole church ought to be the Sunday School. And the Sunday 
School ought to be efficient. 

In these directions progress has been made. If we think of numbers 
only, there is reason to rejoice — there has been an increase in ten years 
of 4,538 Sunday Schools and of 1,061,871 in enrollment. A net gain of 
2,042 for every Sunday in the past ten years has been made in Southern 
Baptist Sunday School enrollment, or 290 for every day. 

But the work done in these Sunday Schools has been far more signifi- 
cant than any figures can indicate. Boys and girls, men and women 
have been taught the Word of God ; the evangelistic note has been em- 
phasized so that thousands have been won to the Christian life ; a de- 
nominational program of missionary, educational and benevolent activi- 
ties has been kept before the minds of the people and their help in its 
promotion secured ; in brief, the church has magnified itself and its Lord 
in teaching the people to observe all things whatsoever Christ has com- 
:manded. 

Much of the progress made has been due to the efficient work of our 
'Southern Baptist Sunday School Board through its field workers, its 
'bounteous supply of books, lesson materials, publications, tracts and sup- 
plies designed to meet every conceivable need of the Sunday Schools. 
The State Sunday School forces of the denomination, special workers 
im many Associations and in local churches have had a large part in 
promoting the rapid advancement made in recent years. If any Sunday 
School has any need whatsoever there is now some provision made for 
its assistance if the members of the Sunday School themselves are will- 
ing to make use of the help offered. Let the Sunday School workers 
of the Mount Zion Association make known their wants to our Asso- 
ciational worker, to the Sunday School Department in Raleigh, or to 
the Sunday School Board in Nashville. Laziness is now about the only 
excuse a Sunday School has for remaining inefficient. 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 21 

The Mount Zion Baptist Sunday School Association has maintained 
a working organization for more than a year. Monthly meetings have 
been held. At these meetings reports from the Sunday Schools have 
been made, conferences held, inspirational and instructive addresses de- 
livered, literature distributed, study courses planned for and the work 
of the Sunday Schools promoted generally. Newly elected officers for 
the year beginning October 1, are: Eugene Olive, Chapel Hill, Super- 
intendent; Miss Mary Vann Hart, Chapel Hill, Secretary; Miss Mae 
Wilkins, Durham, Route 1, pianist. The group superintendents, with 
the names of the churches in each group, are as follows : 

Group No. 1 — Morris Burke, Guthrie Street, Burlington, Superin- 
tendent. Churches : Burlington First, Hocutt Memorial, Glen Hope, 
Glencoe, Graham, Haw River, Moore's Chapel, Swepsonville. 

Group No. 2 — John E. Sharpe, Hillsboro, Superintendent. Churches : 
Hillsboro First, West Hill, Mount Ada, Mebane, Efland, Berry's Grove, 
Mars Hill, Cross Roads. 

Group No. 3 — S. C. Hunley, Carrboro, Superintendent. Churches: 
Chapel Hill, Antioch, Cane Creek, Bethel, McDuffie Memorial, Mount 
Moriah, Carrboro, Ephesus, Mount Carmel. 

Group No. 4— F. E. Steed, Durham, Route 4, Superintendent. 
Churches: Gorman, Red Mountain, Ebenezer, Rose of Sharon, Mount 
Hermon, Sandy Level, Roberson's Grove. 

Group No. 5 — Wm. P. Phillips, Jr., Home Savings Bank, Durham ; 
Superintendent. Churches : Angier Avenue, Edgemont, Durham First, 
Grace, Lakewood, Temple, Watts Street, West Durham, Yates. 

Group No. 6— E. E. Ferrell, care Tilley's, Durham, Superintendent. 
Churches: Bethesda, Olive Branch, Berea, Lowe's Grove, Cedar Fork. 

Group No. 7 — Dr. C. R. Pittard, Apex, Superintendent. Churches : 
Olive Chapel, Mount Pisgah, Lystra, Mount Gilead, Pleasant Hill, Bells, 
Merry Oaks. 

Some of the work in which the Associational organization assisted 
during the past year — credit for which is due largely to field worker 
M. L. Jones and the efficient officers and group leaders — is as follows : 
training schools conducted in 38 churches; 44 volunteer teachers gave 
at least one week in training school work: 1,301 awards were made for 
satisfactory work done by pupils in training classes ; 9 schools were 
recognized as standard; 11 others lacked only one or two points of the 
standard; 28 churches cooperated in a simultaneous training campaign 
September 1st to 7th with class enrollments totaling more than 1,000. 
This was done without expense to the churches. 

The following aims are suggested for the year beginning October 1 : 

1. Chief emphasis for the year upon winning to Christ. 

2. A standard Associational organization. 

3. Thirty standard schools : 4 in group 1 ; 3 in group 2 ; 6 in group 
3 ; 3 in group 4 ; 7 in group 5 ; 4 in group 6 ; 3 in group 7. 

4. An increase in enrollment of 2,017. 

5. Training schools in every church. 

6. At least 1,500 training awards. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Eugene Olive. 

B. Y. P. U. REPORT 

During the past year our B. Y. P. U. has gone forward as never 
before in the history of this Association. We now have 14 Adult, 49 
Senior, 45 Intermediate, 47 Junior Unions, and 14 Story Hour, making 



22 Sixty-first Annual Session 

a total of 169 organizations. When the Association met last year, 
we had 74 organizations. I confess that our faith was not strong 
enough to believe that this work could be accomplished for our Master 
in one year. We now have a B. Y. P. U. organization in 50 churches, 
leaving three without any B. Y. P. U. work. It is our prayer that before 
another year shall pass that the Mt. Zion will be 100% in B. Y. P. U. 
work. 

Forty-one churches have the General B. Y. P. U. organization. It 
is through the General Organization that our work is put on a permanent 
basis. The total membership of these unions is approximately 3,500. 
The State B. Y. P. U. office has estimated our possibilities at 6,000, 
so we have still more than 2,000 young people that are not in any of our 
B. Y. P. U.'s, which is a challenge to us. 

Two thousand of our B. Y. P. U. membership have completed one 
of the study course books offered by the B. Y. P. U. Department this 
year. (These classes have been held in most of our churches.) This 
training work accounts in a large measure for the growth in our unions. 
Mr. M. L. Jones, our field worker, worked unceasingly to make these 
training classes and enlargement campaigns all that they should be. We 
wish to express to him and to the volunteer teachers, who assisted any 
of the work this year, our sincere thanks. 

Shall we not now look to the future with courage? We must go 
forward. We must continue our intensive training work or see much 
that has already been accomplished fail. Many of our new unions have 
elected officers for the coming year who have never been in a training 
class, and who are not familiar with B. Y. P. U. work. Our objectives 
for the coming year are as follows : 

1. Deeper spiritual life in members. 

2. Organize and maintain B. Y. P. U. in every church. 

3. Two weeks of B. Y. P. U. training in every church. 

4. Maintain 50 Standard B. Y. P. U.'s throughout the year. 

5. Maintain standard and win State Associational banner again. 

6. Strive to increase offerings to missions each year. 

7. 2,500 study course awards. 

8. Five thousand enrolled in B. Y. P. U. 

9. Representative of each church at district meeting. 

It is possible with consecrated young people and the prayers and co- 
operation of this Association to go beyond these. 

The Regional B. Y. P. U. Convention meets this year in Oxford. 
It is our plan to have a large delegation at this convention. The State 
Convention will be held this year at Ridgecrest, July 4-10, 1931, with a 
week's program of varied inspiration and information. 

The officers for our Associational B. Y. P. U. for the coming year 
are: 

President: W. J. Broadwell, Durham, N. C. 

Vice-President and Chairman Training Committee : Charles Maddry. 

Members Training Committee: Bryant Carr, Chapel Hill, N. C. ;

ANNUAL REPORT TO MT. ZION ASSOCIATION BY M. L. JONES, 

FIELD WORKER, OCTOBER 15, 1930 

Introductory 

You have been continually reminded this year that this Association 
is now engaged in a three year effort to strengthen all our work. Today 
we close the first year's effort. 

It is interesting in the beginning to note that a year ago the Asso- 
ciational executive committee, pastors and state leaders made out a 
"Calendar of Activities" for the Association and that all the major 
points in that calendar have been carried out, and practically all of the 
goals set have been attained or surpassed. 

Again it will be remembered that we started this plan of work with 
a great simultaneous enlargement campaign in all of the Sunday Schools 
in our rural and village churches. In that campaign large numbers of 
new scholars were enrolled and hundreds of new and untrained teachers 
enlisted. Enlargement is a problem of leadership and so we set about 
to train these newly enlisted leaders so that we might hold these large 
numbers of leaders and new pupils. 

Your leaders have a feeling that the B. Y. P. U. is the most effective 
method of training leadership and therefore the emphasis these first 
months has been on the Baptist Young People's Union. 

Our second emphasis in this work has been upon training schools as 
a further method of enlisting our people. Not all of the training schools 
put on in the Association have been put on under the direction of the 
field worker, and statistics in this report will refer only to those 
directed in some way by your field worker. It is the conception of your 
fiejd worker that he is to be a leader and director of training work, 
primarily in the rural and village churches. With this in mind large 
numbers of local people have been secured without cost to the churches 
and have gone out to do splendid work. To these, and the churches 
who furnished them, is due a large part of the results recorded here. 
This also explains, in a measure, why more work has not been done in 
the city churches. 

One has only to be reminded that we have in this Association 53 
churches to see that the field worker could not put on both B. Y. P. U. 
and Sunday School training classes in all the churches by himself in less 
than two years. It should also be remembered that every special cam- 
paign takes at least a month of the field man's time for preparation. 



24 Sixty-first Annual Session 

Consequently your worker has not visited personally all of the churches 
this year, but instead has sent many volunteer workers. The results 
achieved seem to justify the method used. 

B. Y. P. U. 

1. Associational Organisation. 

Our B. Y. P. U. Association is composed of 14 select leaders from 
the unions of the Association who give their time to the work, and go 
without even having their expenses paid wherever there is need. Under 
the leadership of Jethro Broadwell this organization has forged to the 
front rank of Associational B. Y. P. U.'s in the land as the report 
read here today indicates. 

This organization, scattered throughout the Association constantly 
checks up on the work, through quarterly reports and a quarterly busi- 
ness meeting with leaders from all the churches, and by constantly vis- 
iting the churches. When unions begin to lag and difficulties develop 
these workers stand ready to encourage and where necessary to put on a 
special week of training. It was this work which enabled our B. Y, P. U. 
Association to win the state banner for efficient work even though half 
the unions reporting to the state convention were new unions. 

2. B. Y. P. U. Statistics. 

Present B. Y. P. U. membership in the Association 3,500 

(Membership reported last Associational year 1,639) 
Present number of unions 155 

(79 unions reported to the Association last year) 
General organizations now elected by the churches 41 

(Others have directors. Only 27 general organizations last 

October.) 
Number of awards given this year more than 2,000 

(The aim set for this a year ago was 1,500) 

Number of churches having classes under field workers' plan 45 

Volunteer teachers used in training schools 98 

These volunteer workers have rendered a service of incalculable 
value. They are better fitted for work in their own churches also. The 
list of these follows at the end of the report. 

Sunday Schools 

1. Associational Organisation. 

This organization is composed of ten officers, seven of whom are 
group superintendents located near the center of a group of seven or 
eight churches. It is the purpose of this organization to check up con- 
stantly on the needs of the schools, and lend encouragement where 
needed. Under Dr. C. R. Pittard's leadership the past year a monthly 
meeting has been held which has helped in many ways. Bro. E. I. Olive 
and the new organization recently held their first monthly meeting and 
showed a spirit of aggressiveness that will count during the coming 
months. 

2. Special Campaigns. 

March 9-16 simultaneous training classes were held in the city of 
Durham with several hundred enrolled in classes and in most of the 
churches enlargement campaigns were put on, resulting in more effective 
work. 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 25 

Sept. 1-7 we had our second simultaneous training campaign for the 
rural and village churches. It seems best to hold the rural campaign at 
a different time from the city campaigns because of prevailing conditions 
and also because the teachers for many of our rural campaigns are 
loaned to us by the stronger churches. 

The campaign Sept. 1-7 was primarily for training and not for en- 
largement. Many new teachers and workers enlisted in the enlargement 
campaign a year ago had no training and consequently many of the 
schools have been kept off the standard this year. However, it must be 
kept in mind that these workers could not take the complete manual in 
one week for the Sunday School Board requires two weeks for the 
Sunday School Manual. When these classes started in the campaign 
have been finished many of our churches can qualify as standard schools. 
Plans are under way to complete these classes as fast as the associational 
organization can do so. 

27 churches participated in the week's work. 
43 workers gave their time to the campaign. 

730 was the average attendance each night in classes, which enrolled 
over a thousand people. 

More than 450 awards have come in and others have not reported. 

The expense of the campaign was paid out of the Associational 
budget. 

3. Other Statistics. 

38 churches have had training schools under the field work plan. 
44 teachers gave a weeks time in these schools. 
1,301 awards have been given already including division one of 
manual. 
9 schools are standard and eleven others lack one or two points. 

Advance reports as to enrollment indicate that churches having ade- 
quate training work the past year have shown splendid increases in spite 
of the fact that many enrolled in the enlargement campaign just before 
the last Association, and reported as enrollment, were not permanently 
enlisted. Many of the churches have installed the Six Point Record 
system and in so doing have found that their real enrollment was not 
as large as it had seemed to be in previous years. 

4. Local Expense. 

The church letters this year will show that much more was spent for 
equipment, and literature than ever before in this Association perhaps. 
This means better teaching of God's word and the results that must 
follow such teaching. However, much of this was spent for permanent 
equipment and will be used for years. 

Missions 

Point ten in the_ Sunday School standard deals with our denomina- 
tional work and this has been emphasized throughout the year. Free 
tracts by the thousands have been distributed in addition to hundreds 
of copies of Home and Foreign Fields. In every training school an 
hour is given each week to a discussion of missions, using lantern slides 
and having missionaries speak where possible. 

It is encouraging to note that in spite of the added expense of sev- 
eral thousand dollars for home expenses, the training of workers and 
additional expense referred to above, and in face of prevailing pessimism 



26 Sixty-first Annual Session 

in the financial world, our Association has practically given as much 
to the cooperative program as it did last year. 

It should also be kept in mind that we are to have a week of special 
mission enlistment this fall and that this should help us to go far beyond 
our contributions of last fall. We have been blessed with splendid re- 
wards for all our work and we should continually emphasize our mis- 
sion causes. 

Daily Vacation Bible Schools 

Due to pressing needs for Sunday School and B. Y. P. U. work this 
department of our church life could not be properly promoted this year, 
but five churches enrolled 715 children. 

Valuable supplies are on hand for use next year and will be loaned 
to the churches without cost. 

The Vacation Bible School enables the average church to double the 
actual hours of Bible teaching done. In the churches where these schools 
have been held they have become a permanent part of the work. They 
are held in the summer time at some convenient season and are taught 
by local workers. They offer one of the finest opportunities to use 
school teachers and students, home for summer vacation, to teach in our 
idle church buildings the Eternal Word to children, all of whom spend 
many idle hours. During the coming year we must make a larger place 
for this phase of our work. 

Free Literature 

In addition to thousands of free tracts the following supplies have 
been donated to weak churches by the Sunday School Board : 
300 Bibles given to Junior and Intermediate Boys and Girls, value $150. 
D. V. B. S. supplies, books and equipment, value $100. 
Free literature, including quarterlies, magazines, etc., value $150. 

(These are approximate figures but conservative.) 

Monetary Values Accruing to Association 

If one be inclined to minimize spiritual values and turn to cash value 
accruing to this Association as a result of our training program, some 
idea of the saving affected by doing our training work in a cooperative 
way can be seen from the following figures. 

Free literature, etc., mentioned above $ 400 

Cash invested by the Sunday School Board 1,050 

Making a total cash or equivalent from the Board of 1,450 

Through this plan volunteer teachers taught 113 training schools in 
this Association the past year. In many of these there were more than 
one teacher, often in B. Y. P. U. work as high as three and four to the 
church. Had these churches brought in only one teacher in each case 
ordinarily it would have cost the churches $30 apiece. Thus it will be 
seen that these volunteer workers did more than $1,590 worth of work 
gratis. 

In other words this Association received cash or saved a total of 
$3,040 on its training program. 

In order to receive these benefits this Association has invested the 
sum of $1,350. 

Of course we will not confine our estimate of the work to money 
values. Letters are on file from state and southwide leaders indicating 
that our work has already made an unusual impression on the Baptist 
work of the South. Certainly the local churches are rapidly developing.

Volunteer Workers 

The following 87 persons gave their time and paid their own travel- 
ing expenses in training schools the past year in the Mt. Zion Asso- 
ciation. They put on 113 training schools. Many gave from five to 
twelve weeks of their time going out to the churches each night for a 
week. They gave a total of 136 weeks service.

21. Recommendations of the Executive Committee read 
and adopted. 

RECOMMENDATIONS OF EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE 

Now, after consideration of all the phases of an organized executive 
committee, and of our associational field work, your chairman makes 
the following recommendations, endorsed by the committee, for your 
consideration : 

1. Because of the possibility of confusion, we recommend that the 
association elect only one treasurer, who shall serve as treasurer of both 
the Association and the Executive Committee, becoming a member of 
that committee by virtue of his office. 

2. That, the Association have but one treasury, and that all monies 
collected for the minute fund and for field work be placed in the same 
treasury, provided only that the minute fund shall at all times be self- 
supporting. But in event any surplus from this fund accrue that such 
amount be at the disposal of the associational treasurer for use in other 
work of the Association. 

3. That, recognizing our loss during the past year in not having the 
active counsel and participation of the Women's Missionary Union as 
such on our Executive Committee, the Association authorize the rewrit- 
ing of Article 10 of the constitution to provide for the automatic inclusion 
in the membership of that committee the superintendent of the Mt. Zion 
W. M. U. Association, and one lay-member of that organization, such 



28 Sixty-first Annual Session 

lay-member to be named along with the other lay-members of the com- 
mittee, by the committee to nominate members of the executive com- 
mittee, provided only that the total membership of this Executive Com- 
mittee shall not exceed the number of fourteen as now provided. 

4. That, the field work now being done be continued, and express 
the hope that Brother M. L. Jones, who has wrought so well, will con- 
tinue in the capacity of field worker. 

Further, we plead for the prayerful and substantial support of all the 
leaders of all the churches of the Association. 

C. S. Green, Chairman, 
Executive Committee. 

22. On motion time was extended ten minutes and through 
a spontaneous movement collection of $41.01 was raised to be 
credited to associational fund. 

23. Treasurer of Mills Home, R. D. Covington, was given 
twenty minutes to speak on the Orphanage. 

24. On recommendation of the committees the following 
messengers were elected : Southern Baptist Convention, Eugene 
Olive ; State Baptist Convention, K. U. Bryan. 

25. On motion by M. W. Buck, Ira D. S. Knight was 
elected treasurer of the Association. 

26. On motion, Martin W. Buck was requested to write 
resolutions of respect for our former Treasurer, W. E. Young. 

27. After some announcements the Association adjourned 
at 3 :50 p.m. to meet at 9 :30 a.m. Thursday. C. H. Norris led 
the closing prayer. 

Second Day 

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 16, 1930 

Morning Session 

28. The Association convened at 9:30 and after singing 
"Take Time to Be Holy," R. R. Gordon read from Acts 4, 
and led in prayer. 

29. Report on W. M. U. was read by Mrs. E. C. Johnson 
and the matter was discussed by Mrs. J. L. Gates, Superintend- 
ent of the Woman's Work of this Association, Martin W. Buck, 
Geo. T. Watkins, D. W. Herring, a former missionary to China, 
and Z. B. Teel. Report adopted. 

REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF THE W. M. U. 

It is not our purpose here to give a statistical report of our work for 
the year, as that may be had, by those interested, by referring to the 
Minutes of the W. M. U. meeting held at Mebane, which will appear in 
our Annual Associational Minutes. 

As a digest of these reports, we will say however, that Mt. Zjon W. 
M. U. led the State last year in all points except one, that being the 
failure to meet our financial apportionment. 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 29 

As expressed in our report last year, our aim has been to strengthen 
our Societies, urging them to stress the fundamental aims of W. M. U. 

The chief aims of our Woman's Missionary Union are, as follows: 

Prayer : Individual and united. 

Study : Missionary messages of the Bible and world missions. 

Personal Service: Enlistment, soul winning and methods. 

Stewardship of time, talent and possessions. 

Missionary education of our young people. 

These we have tried to emphasize in the hope that we may realize a 
deepening of the devotional life, a more thorough knowledge of the needs 
of our mission fields, and a greater desire to give of ourselves in sacri- 
ficial service to those less fortunate than we. 

We recognize the fact, and deplore it exceedingly, that we fall far 
short of the goal we would attain, failing to reach our highest possibili- 
ties in strengthening the churches of which we are a part, and therefore 
failing to fulfill the highest aim of our great W. M. U. 

We are deeply grateful for the progress of the general work in our 
Association through the "Enlargement Program" during the past year, 
and we most sincerely appreciate the labor of love of our W. M. U. 
co-workers and the loyalty and devotion they have shown in their several 
tasks. 

May the coming year find us more earnestly seeking to be diligent in 
service, more steadfast in purpose, as colaborers with God in the upbuild- 
ing of His Kingdom. 

Mrs. J. L. Gates, Superintendent.

SOCIAL SERVICE REPORTS 
The Mills Home 

The organized ministry of the Mount Zion Association to orphans 
is expressed in the Mills and Kennedy Orphan Homes. The Mills Home 
is at Thomasville and was organized in 1885. The Kennedy Home is 
an eastern branch located at Kinston and is under the same general 
management. 

So'me interesting facts about the orphanage are : 

The property is worth over a half million dollars. 

There are 635 children in the two homes. 

Seventy Holstein cows furnish a quart of milk per child a day. 

Every month from fifty to one hundred applications are refused for 
lack of room. 

70 mothers and 300 children were aided in their own homes in 1929. 

The expense of operating the orphanage is six hundred dollars, ap- 
proximately, per day. 

In 1929 the average per capita cost per month was $23.53. 

The total operating expenses for 1929 were $206,607.68. 

The Charity and Children is a weekly publication, the organ of the 
orphanage. It has a circulation of 27,537. The library of no North 
Carolina Baptist home is complete without it. In clubs of ten or more 
to one address the subscription rate is sixty cents per year. 



30 Sixty-first Annual Session 

The orphanage is not supported out of the gifts to the Cooperative 
Program but by a once a month offering of the Sunday Schools, plus 
a Thanksgiving offering. About one Sunday School in three is giving 
thus. Let every church in this Association which has not done so 
designate one Sunday in each month as Orphanage Sunday and let the 
offering of the Sunday School that day be sent to the treasurer, Mr. 
R. D. Covington, Thomasville. 

Probably it would not be altogether inappropriate for this report to 
urge with all sincerity that plans be made in each church now for a 
creditable gift Thanksgiving to this very vital, necessary, and sacred 
task of caring for the orphans and widows. 

Hospitals 

The Baptist State Convention of which the Mount Zion Association 
is a part maintains a hospital located at Winston-Salem. It receives 
four per cent of the income of the Cooperative Program plus the Moth- 
er's Day offering of the Sunday Schools. 

In 1929, 2,725 patients were received of whom 591 were full charity 
and 1,009 were partially so. This year to June 1st 46% of the patient 
days were charity. Only 54% bringing any revenue whatsoever. $60,- 
000.00 is needed for this work this year. 

To meet this tremendous demand, this report recommends that every 
Sunday School make a Mother's Day offering in May ; that those wish- 
ing their estates to go worthily leave a designation in their will to the 
hospital. 

Remember the words of the Lord Jesus, "Inasmuch as ye did it 
unto one of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me." 

Ministerial Relief 

There is no greater tragedy than giving one's life in service and then 
suffering as a consequence. The Relief and Annuity Board of the 
Southern Baptist Convention was founded to meet the demand of aged 
ministers and their wives who are without a source of income. 3.5% 
of a Cooperative dollar goes to this service. 

This phase of our benevolence does not receive the recognition it 
deserves. In North Carolina 47 preachers and 45 widows of preachers 
receive in very modest bi-monthly payments something to help supply 
the comforts and necessities of life. These are worthy objects of our 
benevolence and the churches should remember this work as it gives 
to the Cooperative Budget. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Charles A. Maddry.

RESOLUTION OF RESPECT TO THE MEMORY OF 
WILLIAM EZEKIEL YOUNG 

Brother William Ezekiel Young, a devoted member of Mt. Zion As- 
sociation for forty years; a long-time member of our Executive Com- 
mittee and our Treasurer since October 11, 1927, was called to his reward 
January 20, 1930. 

Brother Young was born in Wake County, November 10, 1862, and 
his decease occurred January 20, 1930. Our brother had been an es- 
teemed member of the Angier Avenue Baptist Church, serving as deacon 
and trustee and being chairman of both boards when called home. We 
shall greatly miss his genial, kindly ways ; his cordial and loyal fellow- 
ship and his faithful efficiency in truly consecrated service for his Lord 
and Kingdom interests. To the bereaved family we extend Christian 
sympathy and the consolations of the gospel by which he was saved and 
sustained during his long and useful life. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Martin W. Buck.

HISTORY OF ANTIOCH BAPTIST CHURCH, ORANGE 
COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA 

The First Baptists of America have descended from the English 
Baptists, and the English Baptists received their baptism from the Dutch 
Baptists. By Pedobaptists persecution, in the beginning of the 17th 
century, most of the Baptists in England were dispersed. In 1615 a 
number of Pedobaptists embraced Baptist sentiment, and were sent over 
to Holland, in order to receive immersion from those who received it 
from the Anabaptists and Waldenses. The Foreign Anabaptists, who 
were descended from the Waldenses of France and Germany, sent one 
Richard Blunt, who was received by such a church, and baptized by 
immersion, returned to England and baptized Mr. Blacklock, and they 
two baptized fifty-three others. Several attempts were made to establish 
Baptist churches between the dates of 1633 and 1640, but when the Pedo- 
baptists had the power they were arrested, imprisoned, disfranchised, 
banished, whipped, burned, and drowned. Now, when in spite of all 
their oppression, the Baptists have become a large and popular denomi- 
nation, the Pedobaptists say they are bigoted, and narrow-minded, be- 
cause they will not allow them to commune with them. When they had 
the power to persecute them, did they desire to commune with them 
then? 

"Newport in Rhode Island, according to tradition," says Benedict, 
"has the oldest — the mother church of America." It was founded in 
1638 by John Clark, M.D. There were individual Baptists in this state 
as early as 1695. The first church was gathered together and organized 
by Elder Paul Palmer about 1727 at a place called Perquimans, in the 
eastern part of the state, on Chowan River. Elder Palmer was a native 
of Connecticut. This was the first company of Baptists who came to 
this state. The second company settled on Kehukee Creek in Halifax 
County, about the date of 1742, and was led by Elder Sojourner. He 
came from Berkley, Virginia. The third company was led by Elder 
Shubal Stearns. He came from Boston, Mass., and settled on Sandy 
Creek in Guilford (now Randolph County), N. C. Here he made a 
permanent settlement, and built a small meeting house and called it 
Sandy Creek. Elder Stearns, and his family of eight, with eight other 
Baptists (sixteen in all) constituted the first Baptist Church in the 
Piedmont Section of North Carolina. 

Elder Stearns joined the "New Light," a party of people who ac- 
companied the great revival of Mr. George Whitfield, who was then in 
the United States. A very large proportion of his converts became Bap- 
tists in consequence of which he humorously remarked : "My chickens 
have all turned to ducks." Elder Stearns was baptized by Elder Paul 
Palmer. He first settled in Virginia. Some of his frie- Js preceded him 
to North Carolina, and wrote him of the great destitution in North 
Carolina of Baptist preachers, and he finally moved and settled on 
Sandy Creek, and spent the remaining days of his great and good life, 
and passed to his reward from this section of North Carolina, having 
sown the seeds of gospel truth as Baptists believe it. He is, virtually, 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 33 



the father of all the Baptist Churches of the Piedmont Section of North 
Carolina. Antioch Baptist Church (then Haw River Baptist Church) 
joined the Sandy Creek Association in 1807, one hundred and twenty- 
three years ago. It was represented at this meeting by Brethren Stephen 
Justice and William C. Durham, when it met at Unity Baptist Church 
in Randolph County. 

According to the earliest minutes of the old Haw River Mountain 
Church (now Antioch Church) written by Brother H. M. C. Strowd 
(then Church Clerk of Antioch Church), in November 1850, Antioch 
was an Arm, or Mission point of Cane Creek Baptist Church of the 
Beulah Association for sometime previous to 1806. On the 21 and 22 
of August, 1806, Brethren George Pope, Jess E. Buckner, and Thomas 
Cates held a meeting (we suppose at the Haw River Mountain place 
of worship) and constituted, confirmed, and established a Baptist church 
at this place, and called it "Haw River Mountain Baptist Church." It 
continued to be called by this name until 1830, when its name was 
changed to 'Antioch" Baptist Church. 

From 1806 to 1822 the church seems to have been without a pastor. 
During this time a very serious difficulty arose in the church, and the 
Association on investigation and inquiry found it was not orthodox in 
principle, or consistent with the word of God in practice, and refused 
them a seat in the Association. The Association appointed a committee 
to help them adjust the difficulty, but they failed to bring about a re- 
conciliation. Hence, the church was not again recognized in the Asso- 
ciation until 1814, when we suppose a reconciliation was effected, and 
the church was received again into the fellowship of the Association. 
Brother Thomas Steel was considered as an elder, but, after due con- 
sideration and deliberation, the church thought it best not to ordain him 
as an elder. Brother Mark Andrews was, about this time, licensed to 
preach the Gospel. These two brethren, we suppose, were the moder- 
ators of the church during these years, when they seemed not to have.- 
had a pastor. In 1822 Brother Buckner was called to the pastorate of* 
the church. From the date of 1822 to 1870, the year the church joined;' 
the Mount Zion Association, Antioch Church was served by nine pastors, 
and seven clerks, all of whom have passed to their reward, and we: 
have entered into their labors of love. 

On the 23 of September, 1870, the Mount Zion Association was or- 
ganized at Mount Moriah Baptist Church in Orange County, North Caro- 
lina. The following churches from the several associations constituted', 
the organization: Antioch from the Sandy Creek; Berea from the Ral- 
eigh ; Bethel from the Sandy Creek ; Cane Creek from the Beulah :; 
Chapel Hill from the Sandy Creek; Hillsboro from the Beulah; Lystra 
from the Sandy Creek ; Mount Carmel from the Sandy Creek ; Mount 
Pisgah from the Raleigh ; Mount Moriah from the Beulah ; Mount 
Gilead from the Sandy Creek ; Mount Herman from the Beulah ; Rose 
of Sharon (now the First Baptist Church of Durham) from the Beulah 
Association. These thirteen churches were located in Orange, Alamance, 
Durham (the two latter then a part of Orange County) and Chatham 
counties, North Carolina. Elder George W. Purefoy, D.D., was elected 
moderator of tl? I newly organized Association, and Brother H. M. C. 
Strowd was chosen clerk, who was then Clerk of Antioch Church. Rev. 
W. R. Gwaltney, D.D., preached the introductory sermon, and there 
were forty delegates who presented letters from the thirteen churches. 
Antioch was represented by Brethren H. M. C. Strowd and Alvis Dur- 
ham. Rev. S. Baldwin was pastor at that time, but Rev. J. P. Mason 



34 Sixty-first Annual Session 

was elected pastor in October, 1870. Brother H. M. C. Strowd resigned 
as clerk of the church in September, 1870, and Brother Alvis Durham 
was elected clerk. 

Since the organization of the Mount Zion Association in 1870, the 
Antioch Baptist Church has been served by fifteen pastors, two of whom 
have served the second time, Brethren J. P. Mason and J. C. Hocutt. 
Seven of them served only one year : Brethren Jesse Howell, R. A. 
Patterson, J. H. Vernon, Presley Ferguson, R. T. Bryan, Brother Bruner, 
and R. S. Lennon. Brother C. C. Newton served two years. Brother 
M. S. Ferrell and Brother Bryant Carr (present pastor) served four 
years. Brother C. E. Byrd served the church six years. Brother L. R. 
Dixon was pastor eight years. Brother J. P. Mason was pastor during 
the two terms three years. Brother J. C. Hocutt served eleven years 
including each term he served, and Brother J. W. Watson served ten 
years. 

Some of the most worthy, and noted brethren of the Baptist de- 
nomination have served Antioch Church. Rev. George W. Purefoy, 
D.D., was called and accepted the church twice. He was regarded by 
the church and denomination at large, as one of the most orthodox 
and well grounded preachers in the faith of the Gospel truth in his 
day. He had a "thus sayeth the Lord" for what he believed, and he 
was not afraid to preach it to the people, in the fear of God, and with 
good will and love for all men. Frequently in cases of questions of 
complicated discipline, his judgment was brought in question and 
his advice was always safe and sane. He always was willing to help 
any of the brethren who called upon him. He was trustworthy, and 
was loved and respected by all who knew him. We are indebted to him 
for his diligent search for the facts contained in this report, from the 
minutes of the Mount Zion Association and History of the Sandy Creek 
Association. He has a name and influence connected with our Asso- 
ciation and the denomination, especially Antioch Church which will never 
die. 

Rev. R. T. Bryan, D.D., a missionary in China, and has been for a 
number of years, served Antioch while a student at the University of 
North Carolina. He has a record of which we are all proud, and one 
which only eternity will reveal the good he has done. Rev. C. C. 
."Newton, another faithful missionary, who gave his life preaching the 
•Gospel to the heathen, was also once a pastor of Antioch Church. 
Brother J. C. Hocutt, who was very much loved by the church and 
'community, served the church quite a number of years. Brother L. R. 
Dixon, of precious memory, also served several years, and others, 
-who were brethren of sterling worth, who served their day, faithfully 
;and efficiently, and have gone to their reward. 

Antioch has had nine church clerks since it joined the Mount Zion 
Association. So far as we can find out from the minutes, there were 
six church clerks previous to joining the Mount Zion Association. 
Brother H. M. C. Strowd deserves special mention, as he was elected 
clerk of the Mount Zion Association when it was first organized, and 
remained clerk for seven consecutive years afterward. He was a very 
efficient clerk, and a brother of splendid judgment. He served Antioch 
as clerk a number of years before it joined the Mount Zion Association. 

The Sunday School of Antioch has not been very flattering previous 
to 1911. The report from the Sunday School the second year after it 
joined the Mount Zion Association was the best report it ever rendered 
previous to this time. The report gave sixty enrolled, twelve months 
kept opened, two hundred books in the library, collection $7.43, and 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 35 

made weekly contributions. After this no report of any kind appears 
of the Sunday School until 1881. The report to the Association after 
1881 to 1911 was very meager. Since 1911 the Sunday School has made 
wonderful progress, and has almost as good record as any country 
church in the Association. 

The church has now a splendid Woman's Missionary Society, which 
is doing efficient work among the good women of the church. Also, a 
live B. Y. P. U. Society, in which the young people of the church and 
community are taking great interest under the leadership of their young 
pastor. 

Antioch, like many of her sister churches, has had^ her mishaps and 
decline. Notwithstanding this is true, she has stood in the community 
as a beckoning light to a better life for those, who, with longing hearts 
and sincere desires, are struggling to enter into that rest that remains 
for the people of God. Within her membership she has had some 
Judases, who have betrayed their Lord and Master and put Him to open 
shame, some who, like Simon Peter, have denied their Lord, and gone 
out into dissipation, but the gentle wooing of God's Holy Spirit has 
arrested their attention and brought them again to their first love, and 
some like John, and Mary and Stephen and Paul, who have clung to 
their Lord and Master in the midst of trials and temptations, and cling- 
ing close to Him, they have come out conquerors, and gone to their 
reward and through great tribulations, have entered into that rest that 
remains for the people of God. 

40. Stewardship was discussed by R. Homer Andrews. 

41. Address, "Stewardship Applied," was given by H. A. 
Ellis, pastor First Baptist Church, Henderson, N. C. 

42. C. S. Green made three announcements; and offered 
a resolution of thanks, which was unanimously adopted. 

RESOLUTION OF THANKS 

Having enjoyed and appreciated the fine courtesies and many acts of 
hospitality on the part of the pastor and people of Antioch Church dur- 
ing the days of the Association, we hereby register our gratitude and 
wish for them a great and long period of Christian usefulness that will 
do honor to the noble heritage of the one hundred and twenty-three 
years of the church life.

RESOLUTIONS 

The delegates and visitors of the annual meeting of the W. M. U. 
wish to express our appreciation of the splendid hospitality extended to 
us by the Mebane and Mt. Ada churches. 

For the spiritual atmosphere that has been felt throughout the day, 
we are indebted to the message brought to us by Rev. A. C. Hamby in 
his devotional. 

We feel greatly indebted to Miss Johnson, Mrs. Braun and Miss. 
Lawrence for their inspirational addresses. 

With grateful hearts we wish to express our deep appreciation for 
the untiring efforts and service of our Superintendent, Mrs. J. L. Gates. 
We express our thanks to the Registration Committee and to the 
ushers for their splendid service rendered. And to every one of the 
church for the bountiful lunch and other hospitalities we express our 
heartfelt gratitude. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. Jack Hogan, 
Mrs. R. A. Morris, 
Miss Grace Pickard. 

REPORT OF THE YOUNG PEOPLE'S LEADER 

Again it is with great pleasure that I bring you my annual report of 
the Young People's work. Whatever accomplishments and strides that 



Mount Ziqn Baptist Association 41 

have been made this year has been by the help of our Father and the 
inspiration of our faithful leaders. We have been trying to carry on 
and this rounds out a year of earnest work and steadfastness, rather 
than a growth in organizations. 

There has been a loss in some of our societies and some have not 
reached their financial goal, yet in view of these things there has been 
a greater number of our societies reporting this year than ever before, 
and a finer missionary spirit of the girls shown in their work. For these 
beautiful things accomplished by our boys and girls we give the praise 
to the One who loved the little children of old and we feel like singing 
the song of the Hebrew maiden, "O, sing unto Jehovah a new song: 
For he hath done marvelous things." 

Our Association had 25 G. A.'s to attend the house party given at 
Meredith College. 

We have three girls who have the honor of being queens in our 
Association — Miss Shirley May Stallings of Durham, and Miss Katie 
Lee Stewart and Miss Lucile Cates of Mebane. Miss Stallings is first 
in Mt. Zion and second in the state to reach this honor. 

We have now on our records :

MISSION STUDY ASSOCIATIONAL REPORT 
FOR 1929 AND 1930 

We have come to the close of another Associational year with some 
disappointments but many encouraging facts. With the great help of 
our superintendent, and leaders of the W. M. U., with the mission study 
leaders, we feel gratified over the progress made. You remember our 
slogan for the year, "A Mission Study in Each Organization of the 
Association." We are happy to report a help and inspiration from mis- 
sion study to seven organizations, Rose of Sharon W. M. S. and Y. W. 
A., Berea W. M. S. and Y. W. A., Bells, Sunbeams, Mt. Ada, W. M. S. 
and Antioch Sunbeams. 

A small circulating library in the Association this year has been a 
great help to many societies. Twenty-one classes have had the benefit 
of these books. Another forward step in mission study is the honor 
of reporting an advance course mission study diploma, received by Mrs. 
J. M. Whitted. We hope to have this honor again in the near future. 

Mt. Zion led the state in mission study with 1,808 awards. Also the 
Buck Memorial Mission Study Banner was awarded our Association 
from the Greensboro division. It has been said "Information is better 
than reformation." May we take courage and press on to a higher goal 
in His name. 

Statistical report: Visits to societies, 12; letters and postals sent, 156; 
miles traveled, 300.

i 
REPORT OF LITERATURE, STEWARDSHIP AND STANDARD 
OF EXCELLENCE CHAIRMAN 

In behalf of the members of the W. M. U. of the Mount Zion Asso- 
ciation, it is with joy and thanksgiving that I, Chairman of the Liter- 
ature, Stewardship and Standard of Excellence Committee, do submit 
the following report : 

Literature 

Notwithstanding the large number of subscription to our missionary 
magazines and the Recorder, there are many who do not subscribe to 
any of our denominational publications. We have 2,680 W. M. U. 
members in the Mount Zion Association, and only 1,264 subscribers, 
which is less than one-half of our enrolled membership subscribing to 
any literature. Therefore, I want to urge that plans be made at once 
to secure an increased number of subscriptions in all of our societies 
and to all of our publications, and thus make point five on the Standard 
of Excellence. 

Stewardship 

Many of our women and young people have learned much, or I 
might say much more of the mind of our Master concerning the stew- 
ardship of life, and worldly possessions, in the work of our missionary 
societies. This year is the beginning of a definitely organized effort to 
bring about a stewardship consciousness among our W. M. U. members. 
We should reach the inactive members, stimulate tithing, and the con- 
secration of life and possessions for our Master's service. Our reports 
have shown a decided decrease in the number of tithers during the 
past year. I believe that this is largely due to inaccurate reports, or 
perhaps negligence in reporting our tithers. We depend entirely upon 
the annual December report of each society for this information, so 
you can readily see the importance of sending a prompt, accurate and 
full report from each society. 

Standard of Excellence 
Believing that the Standard of Excellence charts are most helpful in 
maintaining and increasing the efficiency of the local society, we urge 
that they be kept before our members constantly, in order that we may 
have more standard societies. Last year Mt. Zion had 64 societies reach- 
ing the Standard of Excellence, 38 being A-l. Three of our churches 
having A-l Unions were the First Church, Temple and Watts Street 
churches of Durham, and they were each awarded a purple banner. 
Mount Zion has more standard A-l societies than any other Association 
in the state. Many societies fall short of the Standard of Excellence 
by only one point, often so trivial and careless a thing as the failure 
to send in quarterly reports. So let us each accept this challenge to 
overcome the small things as well as the large, remembering that the 
great thing is merely an accumulation of the smaller things. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. A. J. Barbee, 
Chairman Literature, Stewardship and Standard of Excellence Comm.

REPORT OF PERSONAL SERVICE MOUNT ZION 
ASSOCIATION 1929-1930 
Number of societies doing personal service during the year : W. M. S., 
25; Y. W. A., 13; G. A., 19; R. A., 7; and S. B., 17; a total of 81 so- 
cieties out of a total of 41 W. M. S.'s and 93 auxiliaries. It is hard for 
a new organization to learn to report. I hope many who have not re- 
ported have thoroughly organized this year and will report next year. 
I am sure many do good work who do not report ; so let us know what 
you are doing another year. 

Societies sending reports each quarter : 

W. M. S., 8 — Angier Avenue, Bethesda, Chapel Hill, Edgemont, 
Grace, Lowe's Grove, Temple, and West Durham. 
Y. W. A., 7 — Angier Avenue, Burlington Street, Chapel Hill, Dur- 
ham First, Grace, Temple and Watts Street. 

G. A., 5 — Angier Avenue, Junior and Intermediate, Durham First, 
Junior and Intermediate, Grace, Junior and Intermediate, Temple, 
Junior and Intermediate, Watts Street, Junior and Intermediate, 
and Lowe's Grove. 

R. A., 3 — Durham First, Grace, Temple. 

Sunbeams, 7 — Angier Avenue, Antioch, Bethesda, Durham First, 
Grace, Temple, and Watts Street. 
Churches in which all Personal Service Committees have reported 
are Grace and Temple. 

Types of work done by the organizations : Given to needy families — 
Societies have contributed clothing, shoes, pillow cases, sheets, quilts, a 
carpet, made and quilted new quilts ; given milk, fruit, groceries, medi- 
cine, and coal; paid laundry bill; paid for tonsil operation, and many 
other things. 

Given in money, $366.02. 

Given to the sick and aged, cheer, sympathy, flowers, sunshine baskets 
and other needed articles. 

Given to institutions as follows : Louisville Training School, Ken- 
nedy Home, Wright Refuge, Mountain schools, Baptist Orphanage, Mills 
Home boxes of clothing and other things and a linen shower to Baptist 
Hospital. 

Made visits and held services at County Homes, Old Ladies Homes, 
and prisons. 

Planted shrubbery in church grounds. 

Given subscriptions to World Comrades and The Window to Sun- 
beams and Y. W. A.'s ; church papers and magazines and other liter- 
ature to county homes, hospitals, sanatorium, infirmary, and individual 
people. 

Helped with Vacation Bible School: Burlington First, Chapel Hill, 
Bethesda, and Watts Street churches. 
Conversions : approximately 66. 
Kept prayer list. 

Most outstanding churches in soul winning : Burlington First and 
Temple. Particularly good work was done in the following churches : 
Angier Avenue, Bethesda, Edgemont, Olive's Chapel, Lowe's Grove, 
West Durham. Antioch stood out for her Sunbeam's work. These, in 
addition to the larger churches that have well organized committees, 
have done splendid work. 

If our societies had no other excuse for being but the work done by 
the Personal Service Committees, they would be worthy of the name 
of Missionary Societies. 



44 Sixty-first Annual Session 

I would like to tell you what Mrs. Una Roberts Lawrence says 
about Personal Service : "Personal Service must be directed — Organiza- 
tion gives proper direction to all service undertaken. But, after all, the 
secret of all success lies with the individual. Stirring this individual 
woman to activity, giving her a vision of her opportunity to minister, 
setting before her the goal to be reached, enlisting her heart in the 
matter and giving her hands direction and guidance, is the purpose of 
Directed and Individual Personal Service." 

Mrs. J. A. Warren, 
Chairman Personal Service.

EXTRACTS FROM SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORT 

The emphasis this year has not been on organizing new societies, but 
on strengthening those we have. 

Your Superintendent did not think it wise to stress organization while 
the special effort was being put on in our Association in B. Y. P. U. and 
Sunday School work, as few of our churches, especially those of small 
membership do not have the Leadership and hence become discouraged 
when over-organized. 

We have made unusual progress in Mission Study and other phases of 
our work and have much to encourage us as we enter another associa- 
tional year. 

We want our members to realize that they are a part of one of the 
strongest religious organizations in the South, and that as they take part 
in W. M. U. work, they are uniting with others in giving the greater 
part of what our denomination is giving to Missions. 

These extracts from our Mission Board reports of May 1st, 1930, 
give some conception of our work from a financial standpoint. 

From the Foreign Board report we read : 

"We would express our profoundly grateful acknowledgment of the 
great gift of $190,130.81 made by the W. M. U. of the South in their 
Lottie Moon Christmas offering, taken in December, 1929 out of which 
$86,130.81 was applied toward the reduction of the debt. 



Mount Zion Baptist Association 45 

"The board never received a gift which it appreciated more or which 
brought more relief." 

Then from the Home Board : 

"To every dark cloud there is a silver lining. Our dark cloud of 
decreasing receipts has the silver lining of the March week of prayer 
and offering of the W. M. U." 

"The goal set by the women was $50,000.00 and in their enthusiasm 
they went far beyond that mark, making it $73,045.00, all of which goes 
into specific mission work. All honor to our women." 

The W. M. U. report of the same date says : 

"Our 1929 Christmas offering makes possible the salaries of forty 
missionaries whom the 1927 offering returned to their fields and also the 
salaries and outgoing expenses of sixty other missionaries to be returned 
by the Board." 

Each individual in our Association who has contributed of her means 
has a part in this wonderful accomplishment, a privilege for which we 
should be deeply grateful. 

While we rejoice at this opportunity of service and at being a part of 
so great an enterprise, let us not forget that our W. M. U. is only a 
medium through which we serve, and that our Church should claim first 
place in our lives, through which we may honor our Lord. 

So often in our enthusiasm for an organization, we neglect our at- 
tendance at church service, fail in our loyalty to the pastor and his 
program, thereby weakening the cause for which every W. M. U. member 
should be most zealous. Let us resolve this year that we will put first 
things first and strive to stimulate among our members, a spirit of 
greater loyalty to our churches and to the work of the Kingdom. 

Mrs. J. L. Gates, 
Supt. W. M. U., Mt. Zion Asso.
